House to Vote on Bill that Would Provide Small Business with Immediate Relief from Obamacare

Date: April 01, 2014

The U.S. House of Representatives will vote Thursday, April 3, on H.R. 2575, the Save American Workers Act. This bill would repeal the 30-hour definition of full-time employment in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and restore the traditional 40-hour definition. The bill was introduced U.S. Rep. Todd Young (IN-09), who also happens to be an NFIB member. This vote will be considered an NFIB Key Vote for the 113th Congress.

"People in Indiana and all across the country are already feeling the pain of this law because it defines full-time employment as something drastically different than the widely accepted notion of 40 hours per week," Young said.  "Repealing this redefinition and restoring it to the historical norm would ensure that laws governing employment are consistent."

While there remain a number of problems and inconsistencies in the law, Rep. Young’s effort would provide some immediate relief to small-business owners.

"There is more to be done to help job creators and their employees cope with rising health insurance costs and other collateral damage of PPACA,” Kevin Kuhlman, NFIB's legislative affairs manager noted, “but this bill will reduce widespread confusion and minimize one of the most pressing challenges small employers face when it comes to complying with a complex and cumbersome law."
