I am pleased to report the AB 837 passed unanimously in Appropriations this week. This bill will codify Small Business Development Centers and is a step to getting funding to meet the SBA match.SB Cal put together a coalition of 25 business associations supporting this legislation.
Yesterday I met with Go Biz director Kish Rajan and SB Cal will be working with him on further development of SBDCs
I gave a speech yesterday to the California Metals Association and it really is clear to me that small businesses need to understand more clearly the Affordable Care Act. Please see SBA call on this.
If you have 50 employees what is the threshold you have for employees qualifying for medical coverage. My guess is that it is more than 30 hours. This is important because under ACA 30 hours is the definition. Do you have employees that work 30 hours that are not on your medical plan?
