POWHATAN, VA (WWBT) -

A State Senator said that he has come up with a solution to the many problems Virginia has faced in the wake of the problems surrounding the Affordable Care Act.

Sen. John Watkins, R-Powhatan, claimed he is proposing legislation that would require Virginia to establish its own health-care exchange, as part of the SCC, according to the Richmond Times Dispatch.

Virginia is one of 36 states that is enrolled as part of the Federal Healthcare exchange, which has experienced a plethora of difficulties since its web site went public several weeks ago.

Sen. Watkins has introduced similar legislation twice in the past. Both times it has failed.
