Tea Party Boise will meet at 9 a.m. Jan. 21 at the Boise Hotel and Conference Center on Vista Avenue, then rally at the Capitol at 1 p.m. and meet with lawmakers.
The group opposes GOP Gov. Butch Otter's recommendation that the 2013 Legislature approve a state-run health insurance exchange under the Affordable Care Act.
Opponents, including Tea Party Boise, held a small gathering at the Statehouse on Dec. 14, the day after Otter announced his support of a state exchange. In the absence of a state program to shop for insurance, the federal government would step in and operate the online marketplace.
Here's the announcement from the group:
