LANSING, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The fight over a new health insurance market in Michigan is far from being over.

The Republican-led State House recently approved a $31 million grant for the online exchange.

But Senate Republicans, who got behind the state-run marketplace in 2011, are hesitating at a plan to instead partner with the federal government.
