NY officials propose contraceptives bill

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- New York's attorney general and a top state lawmaker are proposing a measure to help continue insurance coverage for contraceptives despite recent the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that businesses with religious objections can opt out of paying for birth control in their employee health plans.

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and Senate Democratic Conference leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins propose legislation requiring employers to give current employees 90 days' notice before changing contraceptive coverage and to notify prospective employees of any contraceptive coverage they do offer.

They say the court's ruling in the case of Hobby Lobby Inc. is limited to actions taken by federal agencies.

New York's Legislature isn't scheduled to return to Albany until January.

Schneiderman says no women should have their personal health care decisions dictated by their bosses' religious beliefs.
