AGC Urges Congress to Fund the Government

What Contractors Should Do in the Event of a Shutdown
On Jan. 18, AGC urged Congress to pass a short-term funding bill that would avoid a government shutdown and provide temporary relief from several Obamacare taxes impacting construction employers. AGC has compiled resources – What Contractors Should Know in the Event the Government Shuts Down – to help your company deal with the consequences of a government shutdown.
As noted, the funding bill would additionally provide essential relief from a number of Obamacare taxes that would otherwise detrimentally impact construction contractors, especially small businesses. Specifically, the bill delays until 2022 the Cadillac tax, a 40 percent excise tax on employer-sponsored health coverage whose benefits exceed specific thresholds. The legislation would also provide a one year, 2019 moratorium on the health insurance tax that will increase the cost of health insurance for small business employers, the majority of AGC’s construction contractor membership.
