House Ways and Means Committee Members Introduce Bills to Delay the Cadillac Tax


Today, the Ways and Means Committee Republicans announced the introduction of a number of bills dealing with taxes imposed by the Affordable Care Act.  (See the press release here:  Of particular interest to ECFC members is a bill providing for a one-year delay the excise tax on high-cost health plans (the “Cadillac Tax”).
There are many steps between the introduction of a bill and its actual implementation, but the introduction of bills sponsored by Ways and Means Committee members is evidence of the seriousness of their intent to address issues regarding the ACA-related taxes.  However, there are other legislative issues which need to be addressed before the House addresses these issues, such as final passage of tax reform legislation and legislation for continued funding of the government. We will continue to follow this legislation and alert the membership when any action is taken on these bills.
