States face a Friday deadline to declare whether they will run their own health insurance exchange, partner with the federal government or allow the federal government to do it for them.

As a result, there's been a flurry of news this week regarding their decisions. Since Monday, two states—Pennsylvania and Tennessee—have declared their intention to reject the exchanges, while Idaho has opted to set up a state-run exchange.
