For small businesses with just a few employees, health care options can be limited and the options they do have are generally expensive. Larger corporations are able to minimize health care costs because they have a wider pool of workers keeping costs down, but smaller companies don’t have that same luxury.
Sen. Brophy McGee has been a longtime champion for the Council and this year is no different. She sponsored and secured the passage of the Association Health Plan bill, which will help the Council provide affordable, quality healthcare options to its members. Additionally, she maintained focus on helping secure additional funding and a dedicated revenue source for K-12 education.
It was a bittersweet moment to see this bill pass. Happy for all the future families who won’t have to endure the heartbreak of losing a loved one to distracted driving, but sad for all those that we lost before this.
