LANSING – Attorney General Bill Schuette today issued the following statement regarding Speaker of the House Jase Bolger’s announcement that proposed legislation to create a state-run health care exchange will not move forward:
“I applaud and appreciate Speaker Bolger’s wise decision to halt the vote on implementation of a state-run health insurance exchange. I have always had grave concerns about establishing a health care exchange. This is an extremely complex issue. In my discussions with other attorneys general and legal experts, we agree that many unanswered questions still remain, especially with regard to future costs to Michigan taxpayers and the practical and legal impact of looming federal mandates.”
Damn Straight AG Schuette.
