Businesses to push for modifications to Senate bill

Wall Street Journal, December 28, 2009

Businesses are set to push for modifications to the Senate-approved health bill, while urging lawmakers to steer clear of the version passed by the House, the Wall Street Journal reports. The Senate bill has drawn tentative support from some large corporations and industry groups, despite containing a range of provisions that they hope to change. But businesses of all sizes oppose the House bill, which contains more-stringent requirements on employers to offer health coverage to employees.
