Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam says the state is ready for Thursday’s expected Supreme Court ruling on the federal health care overhaul, no matter what the court decides. That’s because the state has been carefully keeping its options open for the last year, according to the Nashville Public Radio. If the law stands, the state’s main responsibility would be setting up an insurance exchange. Haslam says the state has been using federal grants to pay for planning its exchange, so it will be ready to meet the law’s requirements.
