MONTGOMERY—On Monday Governor Bentley invited top legislators and administration official to a high level meeting at the Capitol.
The meeting was called by the governor to discuss the implementation of the insurance healthcare exchange portion of the ACA also know as Obamacare.
The big question that Governor Bentley put before the high powered council, was should he move forward with building out the federally mandated healthcare exchange or not.
Over the last year many legislators have expressed concerns and even annoyance at what they perceived as the governor’s unwillingness to include or inform legislators of his administrations plan for the Alabama exchange.
The Alabama Political Reporter spoke with several individuals who attended the high level meeting on conditions of anonymity. They expressed hope that the dialogue that began on Monday would continue.
