Indiana Democrat Senator Joe Donnelly is working to make the president's healthcare law a little easier for businesses to implement.
A key provision of the healthcare legislation has been delayed for a year.
According to the Affordable Care Act, a full-time work week is 30 hours.
The concern is that businesses will and have already started to cut hours to avoid the expense of having to provide benefits to employees that they consider part time.
Donnelly is working with Senator Susan Collins, a Republican from Maine, on the legislation to re-define full-time status in the healthcare law.
There's a similar bill in the House of Representatives.
