Transamerica Center for Health Studies | AB 2096 - Crowdfunding

On Tuesday, Small Business California's AB 2096 (Muratsuchi) - Crowdfunding,  passed the Senate Judiciary Committee! It will now go to Appropriations. Senator Mark Leno from San Francisco was the major reason this got out of the Committee over the objections of Committee Chair Jackson. Thank you Mark!

In an effort to keep you up to date on the Affordable Care Act please see below. Thank you Hector for sending.


As we discussed, the national nonprofit Transamerica Center for Health Studies (TCHS) launched a new 50-state online guide to help small business owners with 50 or fewer employees understand their health plan options and costs through the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP).

The neutral, free guide includes the following information:

  • Each state’s SHOP Marketplace information
  • Tax credit information
  • Employer benefits survey
  • Employer wellness program incentives
  • Updated federal notice requirements
A recent survey by TCHS revealed six in 10 small businesses are aware of SHOP, but only 56 percent of them feel very informed about their company’s options for health insurance.
