Public Charge Rule

  • The Public Charge Rule would have widened the definition of what makes an immigrant a public charge.

Texas v. United States

  • In December 2017, a bill was passed which eliminated any tax penalties incurred due to failure of maintaining Health Coverage.

  • In February 2018, a lawsuit was filed stating that the US Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act specifically because it exercised Congress' taxing power. Taking the tax away, therefore, made the law unconstitutional.

  • As of July 9, 2019, the decision is still pending. For further information please see the following link.
