On August 30, 2017 a bipartisan group of eight governors, led by Ohio's John Kasich and Colorado's John Hickenlooper, submitted a health care proposal to congressional leaders that calls on Congress to move quickly to stabilize the individual insurance market and to promote participation on the federal exchanges from both consumers and issuers. In addition to Governors Kasich and Hickenlooper, the letter was signed by Republican Brian Sandoval of Nevada, Independent Bill Walker of Alaska, and Democrats John Bel Edwards of Louisiana, Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania, Terry McAuliffe of Virginia and Steve Bullock of Montana.
