PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, R, has decided against creating the kind of state-run health insurance exchange, or Web-based health insurance supermarket, described in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (2010).

Brewer's decision, announced Wednesday, means the federal government will provide exchange services for Arizona residents.

Senate President-designate Andy Biggs said he appreciated Brewer's thoughtful deliberation.

"Any exchange run by Arizona would still include an inappropriate imposition by the federal government on our state," the Republican lawmaker said.
