|2013 Builder of the Year- Hadrian Construction|

Now that the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled on the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), it is worth revisiting the point that this legislation could have been a lot worse for small Home Builders and Remodelers if not for the actions of the National Association of Home Builders.
In the version of the Affordable Care Act that passed the U.S. Senate, the mandate to require employers to offer health insurance to its employees would have been effective for any “construction-related business” with five or more employees, even while other businesses had a threshold of 50 employees. NAHB aggressively lobbied Congress to remove that requirement that clearly would have harmed construction firms. NAHB organized its members and together the five-employee mandate was removed before the bill was presented to the President for his signature.
