2013 House Bill 4044: Ban mandating all health insurance go through "Obamacare“ exchange
  1. Introduced by Rep. Mike Shirkey (R) on January 22, 2013, to prohibit a state “exchange” created under the federal health care law from mandating that insurance companies must sell all health insurance policies through the exchange. The Michigan legislature elected to let the federal government create an exchange here rather than create a state-run version, so the measure would only have effect if that choice is later reversed.
