Arlington, VA: The National Grocers Association (NGA) today commended the House Committee on Ways and Means for passing H.R. 2575, the Save American Workers Act. The bill, sponsored by Congressman Todd Young (R-IN), would change the new definition of a full-time employee as defined in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) from 30 hours per week per month to 40 hours per week per month.
"NGA is pleased to see H.R. 2575 continue to advance through Congress," said Peter J. Larkin, President and CEO of NGA. "Changing the ACA's definition of a full-time employee is a top priority for our membership, and we appreciate Chairman Camp's attention to this important issue. NGA urges House Leadership to bring this bill to the Floor for a bipartisan vote, and we look forward to swift consideration in the Senate."
The next step for this bill is a vote on the House floor, which is expected to occur in the upcoming weeks. Prior to today's markup, the House Committee on Ways and Means held a hearing last week on H.R. 2575 in which NGA submitted comments for the record. NGA's statement can be found here. In addition to its statement for the record, NGA President and CEO, Peter Larkin submitted a letter of support to Chairman Camp and members of the House Committee on Ways and Means.
