The Hubbard County Board voted to revamp employee health benefits plans, a move outgoing commissioner Lyle Robinson said invited a lawsuit and poor morale among workers.


The 4-1 vote essentially wipes out single health insurance policies for county employees married to each other and forces those couples to purchase a family policy.

Robinson characterized it as "starting a labor fight over nothing."
