Monday, September 11, 2017 - 12:30pm

On September 11th, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce sent letters to Members of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, the House Committee on Ways and Means, the Senate Committee on Finance, and the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions urging action to: 1) fully fund cost sharing reduction payments; and 2) and extend the suspension of the Health Insurance Tax (HIT) through 2019. Swift enactment of these two priorities will provide immediate help for millions of Americans struggling to afford coverage in the individual and small group health insurance markets.
