ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The interim chief executive officer of MNsure is being asked to testify before Congress.

Minnesota Public Radio News reports the House Oversight Committee has asked CEO Scott Leitz to testify at a hearing entitled, "Examining ObamaCare's Problem-Filled State Exchanges."

The Star Tribune reports he will testify Thursday about the troubled rollout of the online health care insurance exchange.

U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa of California is sending letters to 10 governors, including Gov. Mark Dayton.

The letter seeks internal documents and communications between state employees and contractors and Obama Administration officials relating to their insurance exchanges.

In a statement, Leitz said he's happy to comply and will say Minnesota has among the lowest insurance premiums and MNsure has enrolled more than 150,000.
