NRF welcomes bill raising Affordable Care Act employment threshold to 100
July 2, 2013,
WASHINGTON - The National Retail Federation today issued the following statement from Senior Vice President for Government Relations David French on the introduction of H.R. 2577, the Small Business Job Protection Act, sponsored by Representative Luke Messer (R-Ind.). The bill would amend the Affordable Care Act to cover businesses with 100 or more full-time employees instead of 50.
"This legislation would bring common sense back to the debate over health care reform," French said. "Washington needs to focus more attention on the needs of America's small businesses and entrepreneurs rather than placing additional burdens, mandates and regulations on them.
"The retail industry, the largest private sector employer, supports this pro-jobs bill and will work to ensure that it receives serious consideration in Congress."
