Illinois legislators have sidestepped a political minefield this spring. As Barack Obama’s home state, there had been a push to implement a key component of the president’s signature health care plan.
Instead, General Assembly leaders collectively decided to shelve their work on a so-called “insurance exchange.”
But now there’s pressure on Governor Pat Quinn to pick up where legislators left off.
