Arkansas Congressmen Back Health Care Law Delay
Arkansas's four congressmen have voted for proposals to delay implementing two key parts of the federal health care law.
Republican Reps. Tom Cotton, Rick Crawford, Tim Griffin and Steve Womack on Wednesday voted for proposals that would delay the implementation of the employer and individual mandates of the federal health care law.
Griffin had introduced the bill on the employer mandate, which codified the Obama administration decision to delay for a year the requirement that businesses provide insurance or face a penalty.
The other measure would extend a similar delay to virtually all Americans who will be required to obtain coverage starting Jan. 1.
