Setting up a Michigan health care exchange, legislators delay debate
The debate over establishing and paying for a state-operated health insurance exchange has been pushed into next year.
Action on the exchange stalled as House and Senate Republicans continue to disagree on whether it would amount to an endorsement of the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
House Republicans would prefer to wait until after the U.S. Supreme Court rules on the federal law. Governor Rick Snyder says delay could force Michigan into a federal bureaucracy.
