Wal-Mart fighting Good Medicine BILL - to share Generosity, Wisdom, Strength, Courage

Absent court intervention, the first requirement the bill places on Wal-Mart -- and any company with more than 10,000 employees in Maryland -- is a report due next January detailing employee health expenditures in 2005. Under the new law, any company whose spending fell short of 8 percent of its payroll will be required to pay the difference to the state's health program for the poor.

At least four companies of that size operate in Maryland, but Wal-Mart is the only one that has said it would not likely meet the target. The retailer has not made precise numbers public.

"We don't really know where they are," said Vincent DeMarco, president of the Maryland Citizens Health Initiative, a group that lobbied hard for the override of Ehrlich's veto. "We don't know their internal numbers."

DeMarco said the company testified in 2004 that its health care spending amounted to about 5 percent of payroll. Last year, he said, they told lawmakers that it had risen to more than 7 percent. Recently, Wal-Mart began offering a more affordable benefits plan, costing as little as $23 a month for a single worker in Maryland.
