Perdue: Sell insurance across state lines

I almost forgot something important from Gov. Sonny Perdue's speech this morning. From his office after the speech:
In his remarks the Governor also unveiled a health insurance reform proposal that will allow individuals to buy health plans that have been approved for sale in other states. Currently, consumers can only purchase individual plans that have been specifically approved for sale in Georgia, which limits their ability to find the best plan for their specific needs.

“With sweeping insurance mandates from Washington on the horizon, the time has come to open up the individual insurance market and allow consumers to find the plan that best fits their needs,” Governor Perdue said.
I also got the sense that the governor, and the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, do not like what the Democratic Congress is doing with health care reform.
