(BOISE) – Lawmakers in the Idaho House have arrived at what could be one of the more contentious issues of the season – Gov. Butch Otter’s plan for a state-based health-insurance insurance exchange. The bill was introduced Monday and a public hearing is set for Thursday at the Capitol. Otter has said the state-based exchange will help Idaho maintain control but he faces opposition from lawmakers who do not want the state to give in on the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.
