Democrats take another look at health exchange review


Senate Bill 52:

DENVER — Colorado Democrats appear to have changed their minds on giving the state’s health insurance exchange its deepest review yet.

But it won’t be clear until a Tuesday afternoon hearing whether the change extends to the chamber still under Democratic control.

A bill to order a thorough audit for Connect For Health Colorado faces a vote in a committee of the Democratic House. The measure had Democratic support in the GOP Senate, where it passed in January.

The audit was a priority for Republicans last year but failed in the Democratic-controlled Senate. Democrats said that the exchange had already been audited and that an extra audit would be needless.

But the GOP now controls the Senate, and Senate Democrats dropped their opposition.
