Senate confirms insurance exchange board members

The Idaho Senate voted today, with no debate on any of them, to confirm the first five of 12 appointees to the state's health insurance exchange board, Your Health Idaho. Among those confirmed today were Chairman Stephen Weeg and former state Rep. Margaret Henbest. The remaining seven appointments still are pending; six are up for committee review this afternoon. Sen. Dean Cameron, R-Rupert, who carried Henbest's nomination, recalled her service on the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee. “She was just an outstanding committee member who worked tirelessly and in my opinion saved the state millions through her efforts,” he said. Sen. Dan Schmidt, D-Moscow, said of Weeg, “I’ve worked with him in multiple capacities, and in my opinion this is an excellent nomination.”
