"This report summarizes legislative actions taken to repeal, defund, delay, or otherwise amend the ACA [Affordable Care Act] since the law's enactment. The information is presented in three appendices. Table A-1 in Appendix A summarizes the authorizing legislation to amend the ACA that has been approved by both chambers and enacted into law. Table B-1 in Appendix B summarizes the ACA provisions in authorizing legislation that passed the House in the 112th Congress (2011-2012) but was not approved by the Senate. It also lists the ACA-related legislation that the House has passed to date in the 113th Congress (2013-2014), but which has not been taken up by the Senate. Table C-1 in Appendix C summarizes the ACA-related provisions in enacted annual appropriations acts for each of FY2011 through FY2014. Also included is a brief overview of all the ACA-related provisions added to appropriations bills considered, and in most cases reported, by the House and Senate Appropriations Committees since FY2011. To help provide context for the information presented in the appendices, the report continues with some background on the core provisions of the ACA. That is followed by an overview of the law's impact on federal spending. This report is updated periodically to reflect legislative and other developments. A companion CRS [Congressional Research Service] report summarizes 'administrative' actions taken by CMS and the IRS to delay, extend, or otherwise modify implementation of certain ACA provisions."
