Senate GOP Still Holding up Insurance-Exchange Legislation

Posted by: Cara Matthews - on Sep 14, 2011

Nearly three months after Gov. Andrew Cuomo and lawmakers forged an agreement on legislation to set up a health-insurance exchange in the state, the GOP-controlled Senate has yet to indicate whether it plans to return to Albany to vote on the bill. States are required to set up health-care exchanges to comply with the federal Affordable Care Act.

The measure passed the Assembly at during the last week of session in June, but it was removed from the Senate agenda because some Republicans said they oppose “Obamacare” and thus would vote no on the bill. Senate leaders said it could be taken up later in the year. The Senate has not returned since June, and it’s unclear whether the bill will be voted on.
