Idaho GOP Central Committee members voted in opposition to the state-based exchange during the committee's winter meeting Saturday at Boise's Riverside Hotel.

The recommendation will be passed on to Idaho leadership and lawmakers, who “can act on it or not as they choose,” Resolutions Committee Secretary Ronalee Linsenmann said.
