GA Governor Rules Out Health Care Exchange

ATLANTA — A day after Barack Obama's re-election, Gov. Nathan Deal suggested that he will not implement a Georgia health insurance exchange as part of the 2010 federal health care overhaul that ranks as the president signature legislative achievement.

Deal told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he wouldn't disclose his decision until notifying federal authorities. But he noted that the state stopped planning an exchange once federal agencies wrote regulations that he says restrict Georgia's ability to design its own program.

The decision to stop, Deal says, is "probably a pretty good indication of where we are headed."
