Idaho House: Add oversight to insurance exchange
Updated On: Feb 13 2013 06:58:51 PM CST
The Idaho House of Representatives is now supporting a state-based health insurance exchange, but under one condition.
They'd like two state lawmakers on the board of the exchange.
Rep. Wendy Horman, R - Idaho Falls, said this measure will give the state more control in an issue many feel is beyond state control.
"I'm happy that we have found a path forward, again, that just brings protection to our citizens -- I believe protects our state sovereignty and brings better oversight through the legislative process," Horman said.
Aides to Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter said he supports this measure.
