Illinois moving to enact overhaul provisions
CHICAGO (AP) – Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn on Thursday hailed the U.S. Supreme Court decision upholding key provisions of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, and said he now will look to the state Legislature to pass a law establishing an online health insurance marketplace.
The governor did not rule out the possibility of issuing an executive order to establish an exchange, an important part of the law’s requirement that almost every individual have insurance.
“This is a great victory day for health care in our state and in our country,” Quinn said at a news conference where he signed three health care-related bills into law, including one that will allow small businesses to form health care purchasing groups.
