House Resolution 5 recommends the board suspend implementation of the plan it adopted Dec. 7, 2017 for the 2019 plan year. The vote was 97-1.

She said the governor, House and Senate Republicans are in agreement, adding PEIA Director Ted Cheatham was in agreement when he spoke to delegates in the Republican caucus.
