Gov. John Kitzhaber says Oregon can proceed with its plans to reshape health care now that the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the federal health care overhaul.

"I am pleased that the Supreme Court has upheld the Affordable Care Act, which will help all Oregonians, including the 600,000 Oregonians who are uninsured, have better access to health coverage," Kitzhaber said in a statement issued after the decision. "It's a vindication of the Obama Administration's bold approach.

"Oregon’s health transformation initiative is well underway. We’re moving forward with coordinated-care organizations that will transform Medicaid for better health and lower cost. And the Oregon Health Insurance Exchange will be a central marketplace where individuals and small businesses can shop for health plans and receive help paying for coverage."
