BALTIMORE (AP) -- A Maryland congressman says subpoenas have been sent in an investigation into Maryland's badly flawed health exchange website.

Rep. Andy Harris said in a statement on Tuesday that an audit by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General has developed into "a full-blown investigation."

Chris Meekins, a spokesman for the Maryland Republican, says Harris' office received the information during an update late last month on how the audit was proceeding.

Maryland's health exchange website crashed almost as soon as it opened on Oct. 1. The state was not able to fully fix it. Maryland is revamping the website with technology from Connecticut for the next enrollment period.
