On Thursday the members of the Alabama House of Representatives unanimously passed HB245.
In a vote of 92-0 the house passed legislation that would establish a statewide healthcare exchange.
HB245 is a response to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare.
The Affordable Care Act mandates that all states must form their own insurance exchanges or fall under a system instituted by the federal government.
