SHAHEEN STATEMENT ON ‘NOT MY BOSS’ BUSINESS ACT’ VOTE

July 16, 2014

(Washington, DC) – U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) released the following statement after the U.S. Senate failed to advance the Protect Women’s Health from Corporate Interference Act, also known as the “Not My Boss’ Business Act,” which would have protected women’s health care from employer interference:

“Women, not their employers, should be in charge of decisions about their health care, and I’m disappointed that we couldn’t pass legislation today that would’ve strengthened protections of this right. The ‘Not My Boss’ Business Act’ was common sense legislation that would have kept employers out of the health care decisions of their employees and I’ll continue to fight for its passage because women should be able to make their own health care decisions without employer interference.”

Earlier today, Senator Shaheen spoke on the Senate floor in support of the Protect Women’s Health from Corporate Interference Act.
