President Clinton used a visit to Columbia today to congratulate Missouri for its 1997 Patients Bill of Rights. Speaking at the University of Missouri campus, the President complained about the defeat of a federal HMO bill that he backs. He emphasized how close Congress is to passing a bill. He told an audience of a few hundred people he believes a Republican alternative leaves out too many people. After his speech, Clinton took in a lunch of barbeque at a Columbia restaurant.
