It’s Bills, Bills, Bills – And Hearings – on this Week’s Podcast

A flurry of legislation of interest to NAHU was introduced this week, from changing the definition of full-time from 30 hours to 40 hours, to the newest attempt at repealing and replacing the ACA, to legislation for single-payer healthcare. You may be wondering why the sudden rush of bills all at once, or will any of these actually pass, and if so, what should I know for my clients? To help you make sense of this crazy week in Congress, check out our 30-minute podcast with Vice Presidents of Congressional Affairs John Greene and Chris Hartmann and Vice President of Government Affairs Marcy M. Buckner. They debrief what was included in these bills, how they might be different from any previous versions, and what they mean in the context of overall healthcare reform efforts, including the hearings held this week.
