PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Another official tied to the development of Oregon’s troubled health insurance exchange has resigned.

State officials announced Thursday that Steve Powell, deputy chief information officer at the Oregon Health Authority, is leaving for a new job. The Oregonian reports (https://bit.ly/1p0W3ZQ ) Powell’s last day is June 5.

Powell was a deputy to Carolyn Lawson, former top technology manager at the agency whose team was in charge of the early development of Cover Oregon’s website. Lawson resigned in December.

Powell replaced Lawson on an interim basis. Last month, the state brought back Lawson’s predecessor, John Koreski, to replace Powell as interim, and Powell became his deputy.

Powell is the sixth official connected to the Cover Oregon debacle to resign.
