EXCERPT

“One of the proposals, sponsored by Hester, would provide $15 million in tax credits for small businesses shopping for health insurance through Maryland’s Small Business Health Options Program.

The legislation, which has not yet been drafted, would also include $2 million for outreach by Maryland Health Benefit Exchange so small business know about the available subsidies.

Creating more tax subsidies could help more small businesses, particularly those with 15 or fewer employees, buy coverage and help them compete for employees in a tight labor market, said Michele Eberle, the exchange’s director.”
