Idaho ‘at crossroads’ on health insurance exchange

You can read my full story here at on Gov. Butch Otter's pitch to state lawmakers today for the state to apply for a $40 million federal grant to set up its own health insurance exchange - to avoid the feds stepping in and doing it for the state - and the supportive response from lawmakers, including some who are leery of any participation in national health care reforms. The state has to apply for the grant by Sept. 30; it could decide later to return some or all of the money with no penalty, Otter said.
