Congressman Tim Ryan Statement on Extension of One-Year Tax Extenders Bill

Dec 4, 2014 Issues: Helping Working Families

Washington DC – Congressman Tim Ryan made the following statement today in response to his vote in favor of the One-Year Tax Extenders Bill:

“I was pleased to support this legislation which extends much needed tax deductions and credits for individuals and businesses across our nation. This bill enables Americans to have the certainty they need to move forward with their personal and business finances. While I would have preferred that this legislation included an extension of the Health Coverage Tax Credit, it does contain many tax provisions that will help businesses and working families. It also provides for both continued investments in low income communities and clean energy advancements.

"I call on the Republican leadership to act quickly and pass an extension of the Health Coverage Tax Credit, a lifeline for American families impacted by unfair trade policies and the many Delphi salaried retirees in my District and across the nation."
