This bill provides preference to business entities that do not employ foreign workers who have been granted H-1B visas for State contracts that implement any programs of the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act," Pub. L.111-148, and the "Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010," Pub.L.111-152, more commonly known as the "Affordable Care Act." This type of visa permits the temporary employment of foreign workers in specialty occupations or as fashion models. The purpose of this legislation is to ensure that positions funded by public monies to implement programs for the Affordable Care Act are used first to provide employment to individuals who are residents of this nation. It has been reported that some businesses hired by states to implement provisions of the Affordable Care Act are hiring individuals who have a temporary H-1B visa at salaries that are significantly less than the salaries of American workers in comparable jobs. These temporary H-1B visa holders are taking jobs from qualified residents of the United States.
