WASHINGTON (AP) - Premiums will go up sharply next year under President Barack Obama's health care law, and many consumers will be down to just one insurer, the administration confirmed Monday.

The likelihood of voter registration or election fraud happening in Fulton County is very small, said Fulton County Clerk's office employees Friday.
First, said Fulton County Clerk Teri Furnivall, Fulton County keeps its voter registration information in-house so nobody could hack it through the internet. "We don't have electronic poll books. We're not hooked up to the internet. It's all in-house," Furnivall said.
The Fulton County Auditor's office submitted Wednesday the county's 2017 budget to the Indiana Department of Local Government Finance, or DLGF.
A budget of $12,949,796 for 2017 was adopted by the Fulton County Council on Tuesday. The DLGF has the final say on how much money the county can budget and how much it can raise through property taxes. The proposed local tax levy for budget year 2017, tax year 2016, equals $5,318,521.
For residents in Fulton County, the estimated tax rate - per $100 of assessed property value - will be .5198, which equals $519.80 for homes with an assessed value of $100,000.
