    BENISHEK. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in strong support of H.R. 30, the Save American Workers Act, and to urge all of my colleagues to join me in voting ``yes'' on this important initiative.

    I have heard from many people across northern Michigan--from working moms and dads and small business owners to county government--that the President's health care law is stifling economic growth, job creation, and hours of work.

    Mr. Speaker, one of the most burdensome and baffling regulations imposed by the President's health care law was the reclassification of what constitutes a full-time employee.

    The Save American Workers Act will get rid of this rule, helping employees in Michigan and around the country create more opportunities in our area. This simple and commonsense fix will be a good first step towards restoring the true definition of full-time employment and increasing jobs in northern Michigan.

    I have joined with 147 of my colleagues--more than one-third of the entire House--in being an original cosponsor of this legislation. I am happy that this is one of the first bills that the House of Representatives will pass.

    Mr. Speaker, I urge all of my colleagues to support this legislation.
