Fast Facts
  • President Trump announced a deal with Congressional leaders that would reopen the government through February 15, to give lawmakers time to negotiate a longer-term agreement. The announcement came after the Senate voted 52-44 and 50-47 on competing legislation to reopen the government, both failing to reach the 60-vote threshold for cloture. NAHU remains concerned about the impact of the continued partial government shutdown on the consideration of our legislative priorities.
  • Bipartisan legislation was introduced in the House to permanently repeal the Cadillac Tax.
  • Bipartisan legislation was introduced in the Senate that would provide for a two-year delay of the ACA’s Health Insurance Tax through December 2021.
