If Doug Newman of Richmond-based Newman Concrete wants a full staff next year, he may have to shoulder some additional costs, or pay a penalty.

Newman’s family-run company pours concrete at job sites around Maine, and has between 50 and 100 workers on staff during summers.

Most of those workers don't currently qualify for employer-paid health insurance from Newman's company, but because of the way the Affordable Care Act, the 2010 federal health reform law, is written, those workers could mean thousands of dollars in penalties if Newman doesn't provide health insurance.
