Description:

This bill would amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to ensure that emergency services volunteers are not taken into account as employees under the shared responsibility requirements contained in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). This will protect Volunteer Fire Departments and similar entities from having to offer health insurance.
