Lawmakers Say Yes To Idaho’s Insurance Exchange
Boise, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) - Lawmakers Thursday approved Gov. Otter's plan for a state-based insurance exchange, rather than letting Uncle Sam come up with one for the gem state instead.
The 23-12 vote to send the measure to the house marks a key milestone for otter's bill.
Otter says it will result in a marketplace for individuals and small businesses that's more cost effective and friendlier to Idaho residents and agents than Washington, DC's alternative.
