10:59 AM -- HB16-1435



Senators Kefalas and Ulibarri presented House Bill 16-1435 to the committee. This bill, as amended by the House Health, Insurance, and Environment Committee, creates an employment-related public benefits enterprise (enterprise) as a government-owned business and type 1 agency within the Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF). The enterprise's stated purpose is to improve the health of low-wage workers and their families and thereby benefit low-wage employers by giving them access to a healthier pool of workers. The board of directors of the enterprise consists of seven members appointed by the Governor, representing employers, organized labor, workers receiving assistance under a state-subsidized health care assistance program, and advocates that provide or support health care services for low-income individuals. The bill specifies the various powers of the enterprise.
