President Signs PACE Act into Law

On Oct. 7, 2015, President Obama signed HR 1624, the Protecting Affordable Coverage for Employees (PACE) Act, into law, creating Public Law No. 114-60. As reported in the Oct. 6, 2015 edition of Compliance Corner, the PACE Act repeals the mandated small group expansion from groups of up to 50 employees to groups of up to 100 employees. Now that the President has signed this legislation, it is up to the states to determine how to respond.
