Heller stresses devastating impacts of tax affecting 1.3 million Nevadans

(Washington, DC) –Recently, U.S. Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) spoke at a United States Committee on Finance markup in support of his bipartisan legislation to repeal the Cadillac tax, a devastating 40 percent excise tax on employer-sponsored health care. The tax will negatively impact 1.3 million in Nevada alone, including public employees, service industry workers, and small business owners and retirees.  


Senator Heller along with Senator Martin Heinrich (D-NM) successfully steered through the Senate a bipartisan amendment to fully repeal the Cadillac tax by a vote of 90-10.

Later, their efforts led to a two-year delay on implementation of the Cadillac tax.
