S. 1360 mark-up -- now its May 15

  Just talked with Kassebaum's office, and was told that the mark-up on S. 
  1360 will be May 15.  
  Others think this may slip.  Opposition to the bill seems to be enough to
  make some think that it isn't ready to go this year.  There seems to be
  more interest in more modest changes in the Administrative Simplification
  sections of the health insurance bill, as the more ambitious Bennett bill
  isn't as non-controversial as some of its supporters had asserted. 
  Opposition to the Bennett bill has reportedly come from a number of 
  different groups, including consumer and privacy groups, as well as some 
  insurance, business, and health care provider interests.
