Today, Congressman Mike Lawler released the following statement following the passage of the SALT Marriage Penalty Elimination Act, H.R. 7160, through the Rules Committee, setting the stage for a floor vote on the critical measure that would provide necessary tax relief to Hudson Valley and New York families.
“I was thrilled to see H.R. 7160, the SALT Marriage Penalty Elimination Act, pass through the Rules Committee by a vote of 8 to 5, setting the stage for its consideration on the House Floor as early as next week,” said Congressman Lawler. “I have been fighting non-stop to get my constituents SALT relief and the elimination of the unfair marriage penalty on SALT would be a significant win for Hudson Valley families.”
“There is still more work to be done, however, and I look forward to this crucial legislation passing the House,” concluded Congressman Lawler. “We must finish the job and get this passed in the Senate and sent to the President’s desk expeditiously - hard working middle-class families across our country deserve this critical relief.”
