Governor Schwarzenegger vetoed that legislative plan, but recently has proposed his own version, which would require employers of 10 or more people to contribute four percent of their total payroll wages to health insurance contributions.Some states have attempted to set the minimum levels higher than Maryland, including Florida, which sought to increase the minimum contribution to nine percent along with Georgia and Kentucky, which sought a minimum contribution level at ten percent.

The scope of the San Francisco Health Care Security Ordinance is broader than the New York City act because it is not limited to grocery employers, but rather, applies to any employer of 50 or more persons on average, who is required to obtain a business registration certificate from the San Francisco Tax Collector's office.Almost anticipating an ERISA preemption challenge, the San Francisco ordinance states, "[n]othing in this Chapter shall be interpreted or applied so as to create any power, duty or obligation in conflict with, or preempted by, any Federal or State law." The case is still pending, but based on the Fourth Circuit's reasoning, San Francisco's ordinance would also be preempted by ERISA.The State of California has previously attempted to pass laws requiring employers in the state to provide minimum benefits for their employees.This is exactly the type of patchwork system that ERISA preemption was designed to avoid.In April 2006, the Massachusetts Legislature passed sweeping health insurance reform that requires state residents to obtain insurance if they meet certain economic levels.

The Act (popularly known as the "Wal-Mart law") is one of the first, recently enacted, state laws of its kind to be challenged by an employer group on ERISA preemption grounds.
