KY to implement key part of healthcare law

Los Angeles Times, July 16, 2012

As right-leaning states such as Texas and Florida redouble their opposition to President Obama's healthcare law in the wake of last month's Supreme Court decision, Kentucky is joining the list of states that will establish its own insurance exchange in 2014, implementing a central pillar of the Affordable Care Act.Gov. Steven L. Beshear, a Democrat, formally told Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Tuesday that he would sign an executive order to create an exchange "so Kentucky will be prepared to operate it."
