Nearly a year after President Obama signed his landmark health overhaul, most small businesses in California are still unaware of provisions in the law designed to help them provide their employees with health benefits, according to a new poll.

The survey of more than 800 businesses with fewer than 20 employees found that 57% are unfamiliar with new tax credits in the law that small employers with low payrolls can claim to offset the cost of an employer-provided health plan.
