Massachusetts businesses rip healthcare proposal
Massachusetts businesses are balking at a proposed state regulation that they say will force small companies to spend thousand of dollars more in health insurance for their workers, and could lead many employers to drop coverage altogether. The proposed rules are intended to help close a gap in funding the state's universal healthcare law. The regulations, if adopted, would take effect Oct. 1, and raise about $45 million this fiscal year.
