Otter on exchange passage: ‘I know this wasn’t easy’

Gov. Butch Otter has issued this statement on the final passage in the Senate today of his state health insurance exchange legislation, sending it to his desk:

 “I know this wasn’t easy, not for the Legislature and not for me. Nonetheless, I appreciate the civility and quality of debate that’s taken place on this issue in both the House and Senate. And I appreciate the Legislature’s support enabling me to do what I believe is right for our citizens. Of course we share strong objections to Obamacare, but as responsible elected officials we also are committed to constructively working together for the best possible outcomes for Idaho. I’m grateful for that collaboration.”
