Two Republican Congressmen from Kentucky will host a field hearing in Lexington Tuesday titled "Health Care Challenges Facing Kentucky's Workers and Job Creators.
"This is an official Congressional hearing where witnesses will offer testimony that will become part of the Congressional record," says U.S. Representative Andy Barr of Lexington.
Representative Brett Guthrie of Bowling Green is also hosting the hearing that will focus on the Affordable Care Act. The federal health care overhaul requires employers with 50 or more full-time workers to provide health insurance or pay penalties. Last month, the Obama administration pushed back implementation of the employer mandate until January of 2015.
