House Passes 40-Hour Legislation
Yesterday afternoon, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 2575, the Save American Workers Act of 2013, legislation introduced by Rep. Todd Young (R-IN) that would change the definition of a full-time employee from 30 hours to 40 hours under the health reform law. It passed by a 248-179 vote, with 18 Democrats voting in favor of the bill. The House-approved bill will now be sent to the Senate where, despite pending bipartisan legislation, it will likely not make it to the floor as a stand-alone anytime soon. There are rumors circulating that the 40-hour legislation may be attached to the minimum wage package the Senate has been working on. We’ll keep our ears open for any more information on that, so stay tuned. Thank you to all of the NAHU members who lobbied on this issue during Capitol Conference and for participating in all of the operation shouts on this issue!
