Washington, DC – March 3, 2011 - Today, Congressman Bruce Braley (IA-01) voted to help small businesses by repealing the burdensome “1099” provision of the health care law, which was added by the Senate. The Small Business Paperwork Mandate Elimination Act, sponsored by Rep. Dan Lungren (R-CA) and co-sponsored by Rep. Braley, passed with a vote of 314 to 112 in the House today. Rep. Braley released the following statement:

“Small business owners need to focus on running their businesses and creating jobs – they don’t need additional burdensome regulations,” said Rep. Braley. “I’ve heard from business owners in my district in Iowa and they’ve told me that the 1099 provision increases the cost of doing business and puts an unfair burden on them. I’m glad the House took action today to repeal this provision and help small businesses in my state and across the country.”
