Governor Bentley Proposes New Insurance Plan for Teachers
Alabama Governor Robert Bentley .is setting up a new health insurance plan for Alabama's education employees.

A bill paving the way for the new plan failed to get through the state legislature for three years until the Republican majority approved it this year.
The governor says the new program is being run in-house by the state like the state employees' coverage.
