Comments to the U.S. Treasury Department about the treatment of student campus employment under proposed regulations for the Affordable Care Act (ACA), President Obama’s signature health care reform law.

Along with ACE, associations signing the comments include:

  • American Association of Community Colleges
  • American Association of State Colleges and Universities
  • Association of American Universities
  • Association of Public and Land-grant Universities
  • College and University Professional Association for Human Resources
