Small businesses learn about new health insurance options

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)- The Affordable Care Act can get confusing. On Thursday, Arkansas State University tried to help alleviate that confusion.

Several local business leaders sat in on a two hour workshop sponsored by the Small Business Technology Development Center at ASU. The session covered basic information about the law, along with advice on where to go to learn more about it.

Bobby Long, Human Resource Director for Cavenaugh Auto Group, said, "With the way that this thing seems to be changing almost on a weekly basis, you can't get enough information.  So, I decided to come here and see if there's any new information I need to be exposed to."

This workshop will take place again in Batesville on December 4th and in Jonesboro on December 12th. Pre-registration is required; to registrar, call (870)972-3517 of visit
