Gov. Scott Walker recently issued Executive Order No. 123, calling a special session of the Legislature to address the implications of the federal launch of the Affordable Care Act. The special session will begin Dec. 2.
“The federal government failed to get its website fully operational, and it’s irresponsible to force some Wisconsinites to pay the price for the federal government’s failure,” said Walker.
“I’m calling a special session of the Legislature to approve our plan extending the deadline for individuals moving to the federal exchange,” he said. “We need to give people more time.”
Last week, Walker laid out and announced a plan for a three-month delay in the implementation of people moving into health care plans in the federal exchange.
