House Republican lawmakers to review Obamacare navigators

Bloomberg, September 3, 2013
Supporters of the U.S. health-care overhaul are criticizing a House panel's scrutiny of nonprofit groups set to help enroll people in new insurance plans, saying it's part of a Republican effort to impede the law. Republicans on the House Energy and Commerce Committee sent a letter Aug. 29 to 51 organizations in 11 states that have been named "navigators" for the health-care law, demanding documents and meetings to account for $67 million in federal grants awarded Aug. 15, said Representative Henry Waxman, a California Democrat who is the panel's top Democrat. The groups were given a Sept. 13 deadline to respond.
