Gov. Butch Otter's health insurance exchange working group meets today from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Capitol Auditorium; Idaho Public Television will video-stream the meeting live here. The agenda includes speakers, via teleconference, from the Cato Institute and ALEC, along with health law consultant Jack Rovner; you can see the full agenda here. A second working group, looking into a potential Medicaid expansion, is scheduled to meet again in mid-September; both groups will present recommendations to Otter in the fall as to how to proceed under the national health care reform law.
