  • NAHU submitted comments on the proposed expansion of health reimbursement arrangements, underscoring the potential liabilities for employers and recommending numerous changes that will reduce compliance burdens.
  • Federal District Judge Reed O’Connor, who ruled the ACA as unconstitutional last month in Texas v. United States, issued a stay for the health law remain fully intact while the case undergoes appeal to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.
  • The House of Representatives approved a rules package that provides for the chamber to join the Democratic attorneys general in defending the ACA in the Texas case. A separate vote on joining the case is expected next week, and the House Energy and Commerce committee has also planned a hearing investigating the potential impacts of the case later this month.
  • The House passed H.J.Res. 1 and H.R. 21 on Thursday, legislation to reopen the federal government that largely mirrors legislation unanimously passed last session by the Senate. However, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has indicated he will not consider the new session’s version. There are no NAHU-relevant provisions included in these proposals.
