(Washington) -- The Supreme Court has agreed to referee another dispute over President Barack Obama's health care law, whether businesses can use religious objections to escape a requirement to cover birth control for employees.
A Lancaster County company is among the plaintiffs, along with national crafting giant Hobby Lobby.
Conestoga Wood Specialties Corporation is arguing on religious grounds it shouldn't be required to include birth control in health insurance plans for its 950 employees.
The company is owned by the Hahn family, which is Mennonite.
Hobby Lobby is an Oklahoma City-based arts and crafts chain with 13,000 full-time employees.
The court indicated it will consolidate the two cases, allowing one hour for oral argument.
