Petition of the day

The petition of the day is:

Self-Insurance Institute of America, Inc. v. Snyder

Issue: (1) Whether a state law that imposes new reporting, payment, recordkeeping, and audit requirements on ERISA plan administrators that arise directly from their processing of welfare benefit claims pursuant to ERISA “relate[s] to” ERISA benefit plans and is therefore preempted under Section 514(a); and (2) whether the broad preemption language in Section 514(a) can be judicially narrowed to accommodate a presumption against preemption of newly minted state laws that seek to exploit the core functions of ERISA plan administrators.
