Proposition E: Missouri Health Insurance Exchange

Voters say they wish they knew more about some issues on the Missouri ballot, like Proposition E.

"I wish that I would have done more research, and I probably will when I get home now," said Stephanie Kerr.

"Actually, I feel a little bit uncomfortable with that, I still think I need more information on that, but I always feel that way," said Connie Sanders.

"I think if you don't know it by now, you won't know it," said Mark Pautler.

"Yeah I'll probably get on the computer and look around and see what I can find," said Raymond Musgraves.

Proposition E would amend Missouri Law to prevent the governor, or state agencies, from establishing a state-based health insurance exchange unless authorized by a vote of the people or legislature.

That means if passed, the governor couldn't set up an exchange, without the green light of voters or lawmakers.

Some say it might not matter what states do, because the federal government will set up the health insurance exchange.
