Hawaii cited as model of possible compromise in birth control insurance controversy

A Hawaiian law concerning insurance for contraceptive coverage has been cited as a model for a possible compromise between the Obama administration and religious groups that have made clear that they will resist or refuse to obey its new birth control regulation.  Organizations in Hawaii that object to contraception for religious reasons may decline to provide health insurance coverage for it if they advise employees that it is not available and tell them where coverage can be obtained.  It is reported that it is generally successful, but that there are some problems with the arrangement.
