The enrollment deadline for the Affordable Care Act is fast approaching. Lawmakers throughout the state and city are stepping up and attending workshops that help people enroll.

The deadline is Monday, March 31st and the next open enrollment doesn't happen until November 15th. There will be an extension but only for those who have already started the enrollment process.

"The Affordable Care Act is the law, get yourself some affordable health care coverage and lets abide by the law," said State Representative JoCasta Zamarripa.
