WASHINGTON, D.C. – Legislation empowering small businesses to focus their time and resources on serving their customers and employees instead of fulfilling Washington mandates is receiving an outpouring of support from dozens of taxpayer, worker, and small business groups.
Ways and Means Committee legislation, the CHOICE Arrangement Act – Title II and Title IV (H.R. 3799), the Paperwork Burden Reduction Act (H.R. 3797), and the Employer Reporting Improvement Act (H.R. 3801), – remove administrative burdens for small businesses associated with providing health coverage options for their employees. Small businesses will have the ability to provide more health insurance options to employees with less hassle and less paperwork, while employees will have new options to buy the health coverage that best fits their and their family’s needs.
The following groups have expressed support for the health care legislation, which recently passed the full House of Representatives and now awaits action in the Senate:
National Federation of Independent Businesses
Americans for Prosperity/LIBRE
The HSA Coalition
National Taxpayers Union
Job Creators Network
Partnership for Employer-Sponsored Coverage
Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council
Coalition of 12 Associations
