Oregon Obamacare Website Director Resigns


The director of the embattled Oregon Obamacare website has submitted his resignation, The Oregonian reported Thursday.

Rocky King, who oversaw the website’s development, took medical leave on Dec. 2. His resignation will take effect on March 1. King is the fourth official who oversaw a state-based Obamacare website to resign, following officials in Hawaii, Maryland and Minnesota.

Oregon’s website, Cover Oregon, has been plagued by problems since its Oct. 1 launch. Residents were forced to submit paper applications, and the marketplace had only enrolled 44 people in private coverage by the end of November.
