The Obama administration on Tuesday gave businesses an extra year to comply with the new federal health care law.
Now, businesses will have until 2015 to comply.
On the White House blog July 2, it was reported that changes were being made in response to the concerns of the public and businesses.
The reporting process about workers’ access to health insurance will be simplified, and businesses will have more time to comply with the new rules, according to the blog report.
Republicans in Kansas issued statements about this change.
Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kansas, stated in a news release that the administration was forced to confirm “what we have been saying all along - Obamacare is not ready and is not what was promised to Americans. This latest delay, based on cynical election year politics, is bound to ensure Americans will face yet more problems and higher costs across the health care spectrum.”
