“I’m encouraged that the President took action to stop the cancelation of insurance policies that people were promised they could retain. I was particularly happy to see the notification provision included, which is an important part of my bill," she said in a statement.

Landrieu noted, however, that she would continue working on legislation that would protect people from cancellations. A bill she put forth that would not permit insurers to cancel policies that failed to meet Obamacare's minimum benefit standards would do just that.

"I will be working today and throughout the weeks ahead to support legislation to keep the promise," she added.
