Miller told Winona Radio News he has too many concerns and unanswered questions about the Democratic bill including a seven member board that will oversee the exchange with no oversight. Lawmakers need to finalize the exchange by the end of the month, but a weeklong break at the close of March is putting pressure on its boosters to pass a bill now..
Rep. Joe Atkins, the House sponsor, said he's worried health carriers won't buy into the exchange without certain guarantees. Senate sponsor Tony Lourey so far hasn't appeared supportive of the move. House members amended the exchange bill on the floor to prevent plans operating on the exchange from covering abortions.
