WASHINGTON (AP) — Sick of hearing about the health care law?

Plenty of people have tuned out after all the political jabber and website woes.

But now is the time to tune back in, before it's too late.

The big deadline is coming March 31.

By that day, for the first time, nearly everyone in the United States is required to be signed up for health insurance or risk paying a fine.

There's a lot to know about this month's open enrollment countdown.

Most people don't need to do anything.

Even before the law was passed in 2010, more than 8 out of 10 U.S. residents had coverage, usually through their workplace plans or Medicare or Medicaid.

If you're already covered that way, you meet the law's requirements.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court in 2002 barred the execution of mentally disabled inmates.

But until now, the court has left it up to the states to determine who is mentally disabled.

A new case is testing whether states can rely solely on the result of an intelligence test to conclude a death row inmate isn't mentally disabled — and therefore eligible to be executed — despite other evidence of mental deficits.

In arguments Monday, a Florida inmate is challenging that state's use of a rigid IQ cutoff to determine mental disability.

Florida is among the few states that use a threshold score of 70, as measured by IQ tests, to conclude an inmate is not mentally disabled, even if other evidence indicates he is.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A federal jury in St. Louis has found in favor of the St. Louis Rams in a lawsuit filed by a woman who claimed she was forced out because of her age.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Lory Fabian was 56 when she sued the Rams in 2012, claiming she was one of a number of older employees who lost their jobs to younger workers.

Rams attorney Bradley Winters argued Friday that Fabian simply was not rehired when her contract ended in 2011. He said performance issues and the way she dealt with co-workers led to that decision.

Fabian's lawyer said older employees were replaced with interns, and that Fabian had performed her job well.

A judge tossed out a sexual harassment claim before the trial, which ended Friday.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The budget cuts legislators imposed last year on the Missouri Department of Revenue likely will remain in place, even though the drivers' license controversy that sparked them has been resolved through a new law.

Lawmakers reduced the department's licensing division by $700,000 for the current budget year in an attempt to block the agency from scanning driving applicants' personal documents into a state computer.

But Governor Jay Nixon isn't asking lawmakers to restore the funding for the remainder of this budget year, nor is he asking for the funding to be placed in the state budget that begins in July.

At the time, lawmakers said funding would be restored if the agency stopped scanning the documents, which it did after Nixon signed legislation last year prohibiting the procedure.
