DENVER (AP) - Colorado’s health insurance exchange is getting more scrutiny at the state Capitol.

The Senate voted Tuesday to give final approval to two bills to increase oversight of the quasi-public exchange, called Connect For Health Colorado.

One of the bills orders state auditors to take a closer look at how the exchange operates.

The measure is a priority for Republicans who have newly taken control of the Senate. Democrats opposed the measure last year, but are supporting it this year. The bill passed 35-0.

The other bill requires lawmakers to approve before the exchange awards employee bonuses. That measure passed 24-11, with some Democrats in favor and others saying the bill is micromanagement.

Both measures now head to the Democratic House.
