S.Amdt. 502 (Heller) to H.R. 1628: To strike the sunset of the repeal of the tax on employee health insurance premiums and health plan benefits.

Jul 27, 2017 at 9:02 p.m. ET. On the Amendment in the Senate.

Senator Heller, R-NV, introduced an amendment that would permanently repeal the “Cadillac Tax”, a tax on generous and comparatively costly health insurance plans. The tax was introduced as part of the original ACA, but its implementation has been delayed several times. This amendment would have repealed it entirely. This is an unusual situation as the tax plans are typically the result of union negotiations, but as the Washington Examiner notes, it’s the GOP working to help unions while the Democrats are fighting this repeal as they are every other part of the repeal on the ACA. The amendment did pass, but since H.R. 1628 ultimately did not, therefore the Cadillac Tax is still on track to go into effect in 2020.

This vote was related to amendment S.Amdt. 502 (115th) (Dean Heller) to H.R. 1628 (115th). The title of the amendment is S.Amdt. 502 (Heller) to H.R. 1628: To strike the sunset of the repeal of the tax on employee health insurance premiums and health plan benefits..
