State chamber leader: Don’t delay readying for health care reform | GainesvilleTimes.com

Businesses contemplating impacts of health care reform shouldn’t “wait until this time next year to start figuring this out,” Georgia Chamber of Commerce president and CEO Chris Clark told a Gainesville audience this morning.

Clark spoke to area business and community leaders at the Chattahoochee Country Club, in a breakfast edition of the chamber’s 2013 Regional Power Lunch program.

He spoke on a wide array of issues, including how the state’s business environment was treated during the 2013 legislature and its ties to education trends and global competition for jobs.

At one point, Clark honed in on the Affordable Care Act, which takes effect Jan. 1 and has as its centerpiece the individual mandate, requiring all Americans to have health insurance either through work or from a public or government-sponsored source.
