CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada Insurance Commissioner Scott Kipper has asked the attorney general's office for guidance on whether the state can allow people to keep their canceled insurance policies for another year.

Kipper spoke with reporters Thursday in Carson City after briefing a legislative panel on implementation of the federal health reform law.

Nearly 25,000 Nevadans received cancellation notices last month because they don't meet new requirements under the law. President Obama, coming under intense political pressure, last week announced people who had their policies canceled could keep them for another year.

But he left the final decision up to states and many like Nevada are grappling with whether extending those policies is even possible.

Gov. Brian Sandoval says it's up the Congress to change or repeal the law.
