Adjunct English professor for J. Sargent Reynolds Community College, J. Gabriel Scala, collects papers from her students at her class at the school in Richmond, Va., Wednesday April , 24, 2013.  Many adjunct instructors at Virginia's 23 community colleges will see their hours cut starting this summer thanks to Virginia's response to the new federal health reform law. Under the new federal law, employers are obliged to provide health benefits for any employee who works 30 hours or more. Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell responded in February by directing that all part-time state employees work 29 hours or less to avoid the 30-hour threshold.  (AP Photo/Steve Helber)
