Republican Freshmen Send Letter to House Ways and Means Members Urging WOTC and Tax Extender Renewal
A total of 50 Republican congressmen have signed a official letter “urging economic
certainly and tax reform.” The group was led by Representative Reid Ribble (R-WI),
along with Representatives Marlin Stutzman (R-IN), Richard Hanna (R-NY), Tim Scott
(R-SC), Mike Kelly (R-PA), Todd Rokita (R-IN) and Tim Griffin (R-AR). The letter was
sent to Chairmen Dave Camp and Pat Tiberi of the House Ways and Means Committee. In
the letter, the congressmen state:
“We are cognizant that many businesses and families have planned their
operations or budgets around existing tax incentives.
“Therefore, while we may not agree on the merits of each and every extender, we are
advocating for an appropriate and fiscally responsible transition period to prevent
any negative economic impacts. We also are concerned with our nation’s economic condition,
and we believe that this should be considered when discussing extending certain expired
or expiring tax breaks.”
The official release from Mr. Ribble’s office says:
The House Ways and Means Committee is expected to work on a tax “extender”
package later this year. The House Freshmen sent this letter because they believe
that extending certain tax provisions until Congress tackles comprehensive tax reform
will provide certainty to businesses and families during these tough economic times.
