The narrow exception gets a little broader. Administration admits that the exception for houses of worship is too narrow, extends it to some groups that serve and hire people of all faiths, and creates an “accommodation” for other religious organizations.

About that accommodation…Administration admits, after Supreme Court losses in Hobby Lobby, Little Sisters of the Poor, and Wheaton, that the current accommodation needs to be changed, and so it says that it will issue new regulations to “augment” it.
After 3 years of changes, augmentations and exemptions, maybe Health & Human Services (HHS) can figure out a way to make the mandate work for everyone. Hoping for the best with the new “augmentations”!
