HB1142 -- Training Fund Assessment

SUPPORT: A victory for the small business owners came packaged in HB1142. The bill exempts employers with fewer than 20 employees from payment of the Skills 2016 Traning Fund assessments. The program, never utilized by these small businesses, previously required them to pay an assessment and file additional paperwork with the state. Apparently 45 Democrats like the idea of the government stealing from these small business owners as the vote barely passed out of the House in a party line vote, 51-45.

STATUS: Passed out of House. Referred to Senate Committee on Pensions and Labor. Sen. Young sponsoring.
