NASHVILLE , Tenn. (AP) — Legislation that would ban new health insurance exchanges established under President Barack Obama's signature law has been delayed after a fiscal analysis projected the measure would cost the state more than $6 billion.
The measure sponsored by Republican Sen. Mae Beavers of Mt. Juliet was delayed until next week in the Senate Commerce and Labor Committee on Tuesday.
Beavers says she plans to talk with state officials to find out why the cost is so high.
