Title: Health Care Requirements for Large Companies

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote on a motion to deem this bill inexpedient to legislate. The bill specifies that if an employer of a for-profit organization, with 1,500 or more employees, does not spend 10.5 percent of the total wages they pay in the state on health insurance for employees, then the employer must pay into a fund for Medicaid the difference between what the employer pays in health insurance and the percent required. The bill also specifies that the percentage required for non-profits with 1,500 or more employees is 8.5 percent of total wages for health insurance.

Note:

NOTE: THIS IS AN "INEXPEDIENT TO LEGISLATE" VOTE AND IS A VOTE TO KILL THE PIECE OF LEGISLATION. IF THE VOTE SUCCEEDS, THE LEGISLATION DIES. IF THE VOTE FAILS, THE LEGISLATION IS STILL UP FOR CONSIDERATION BY THE CHAMBER.
