154 Congressmen urge change in HHS mandate

Catholic World News - February 08, 2012

More than 150 members of the US Congress have signed a letter urging the Obama administration to rescind its decision to require religious employers to cover contraception in their employees’ health-care plans.

The letter to Kathleen Sebelius, signed by 154 lawmakers, says that the mandated coverage marks an “unprecedented overreach by the federal government.” The bipartisan group calls upon Sebelius to reconsider the mandate.
