(Little Rock) (AP) – Arkansas officials say the state is moving forward with implementing parts of the federal health care law after an election that provided clarity on the federal level – but uncertainty in the state Legislature about the political future of the controversial legislation.

President Barack Obama’s re-election Tuesday came in the same election where Republicans won control of both chambers of the state Legislature – based in part on opposition to the president’s federal health care overhaul.

Gov. Mike Beebe’s office said he plans to formally tell the Obama administration this week that the state plans on partnering with the federal government on a health insurance exchange. The move comes as lawmakers face a debate next year on whether to expand Medicaid under the health care law.
