States Get Another Month in Deciding Role in Healthcare Law

   WASHINGTON (AP) - The Obama administration has given states another month to decide what role, if any, they'll play in carrying out the new health care law.
 
     Instead of having to declare their intentions by Friday, states now have until Dec. 14, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said in a letter Thursday evening to Republican governors who had requested more time.
 
     Most states are still expected to announce their choices by Friday, but a check by The Associated Press found that 16 states are still mulling over their decisions. 
 
     That includes Florida, where Gov. Rick Scott long opposed the law and now says he wants to work with the Obama administration. New Jersey, Ohio and Pennsylvania are also in the undeclared column.
