In October 2015, one of Congressman Guthrie's signature health care bills was signed into law by President Obama.  H.R. 1624, the Protecting Affordable Coverage for Employees Act, maintains the current definition of the small group market for health insurance as employers with 1-50 employees.  That definition was set to expand under Obamacare to those employers with 1-100 employees on January 1, 2016.  The small group insurance market has increased mandates and restrictions under Obamacare, so those workers who would have been forced into the small group market would have seen disruption in their coverage and increased costs.
