House Speaker Scott Bedke says he'll try to find consensus on the health insurance exchange.

Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter recommends Idaho build a state-based health insurance exchange under the Affordable Care Act.  In his Tuesday announcement, Otter said there will be a health insurance exchange in Idaho; the only question is who will build it.  It’s important, the governor said, for Idaho to have a seat at the table.

StateImpact Idaho‘s Molly Messick talked through what this decision means with Boise State Public Radio’s Samantha Wright.  To listen, click on the audio player below.
