WASHINGTON, DC—The American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA) has released a statement in regards to the Administration’s announcement that the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) employer mandate has been delayed.

AH&LA President and CEO Katherine Lugar issued the following statement: “We thank the Administration for announcing the delay in the employer mandate, and for giving additional time for the many businesses across the country that are making a concerted, good faith effort to implement the new regulations. This postponement will give hoteliers, among other important drivers of our economy, the opportunity to work with the Administration to address outstanding concerns and provide input on final regulations that will provide coverage for millions of Americas without slowing our economic growth.

The ACA employer mandate was originally scheduled for January 1, 2014, but it has been delayed until 2015.
