Health Legislation A State-by-state Rundown

A chart showing many of the proposed mandates on employers.

July 28, 2005

The attached chart from the HR Policy Association, a Washington-based lobbying group, summarizes many of the health care bills introduced in state legislatures that would affect the business community.

    The spreadsheet includes proposals for mandates, such as those that require large employers to provide health insurance or pay into a fund; reporting requirements, such as stipulating that Medicaid applicants provide the names of their companies; and conditions of state benefits, such as requirements that companies provide health benefits in order to be eligible for certain government loans.
