But the state is warning that folks who don't have coverage by Sunday face a steep fine.
Rep. Janak Joshi, R-Colorado Springs, said the exchange has had many problems and isn’t working well.
The audit bill unanimously passed a Senate health committee on Wednesday. Another bill to review bonuses at the state healthcare exchange passed on party lines.

As many as 1,900 people struggled on the exchange to see if they qualified for subsidies to help pay for insurance.
On Monday, 12,600 people enrolled in health and dental coverage on the state healthcare exchange, more than any single day ever before. That volume lead to more complaints as well.
Auditors found Connect for Health Colorado hasn’t “sufficiently ensured” millions in public money was spent according to both its own and federal rules.
More individuals and families have signed up for health insurance coverage than at this time last year, officials say.
