House Joint Resolution 61 to be Considered by the Senate

Skip Sperry Blog Leave a Comment

In the coming days, the Senate will consider House Joint Resolution 61, known as the “Hire More Heroes Act.”  The bill, if passed, would amend the Internal Revenue Code to exempt employees with health coverage from TRICARE or the Veterans Administration from being considered in the employer mandate under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The employer mandate of the ACA requires employers of 50 or more full-time employees to provide qualified health insurance. This bill would exclude veterans receiving health care benefits from this count, in an effort to encourage employers to hire more veterans.
