   This bill was introduced by Ro Khanna in the House and has not yet been introduced in the Senate.
   This bill would make large corporations, not the taxpayer, pay for the costs of federal programs that low-wage employees turn to in order to make ends meet, such as nutrition or housing assistance. This bill would make large corporations pay their fair share. By levying a direct fee equal to the public assistance each corporation’s employees are eligible to receive, the legislation is designed to compel all employers to pay their employees fairly with the goal that ultimately no company would be taxed for underpaying their employees.
Covered public assistance programs in the bill include:
Medicaid, Section 8 Housing, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), National School Lunch and School Breakfast programs
