Re "For Utah lawmakers, lots of demands, not a lot of money" (Tribune, Nov. 14):
Utah's legislative leaders say they are in a dilemma. They are being forced to deal with a looming Jan. 1, 2014, Obamacare mandate that requires the state to provide health insurance for employees of the state-operated liquor stores who work at least 30 hours a week.
Until now, these part-time workers have been denied the health insurance afforded other full-time state workers. Now, the state is considering cutting their hours to avoid the insurance requirement.
