Washington, D.C.– This week Congress passed three bipartisan bills that face veto threats from President Obama. On Wednesday the House voted to send the Keystone XL Pipeline project to the President’s desk. The following day the America Gives More Act of 2015, which encourages charitable giving by permanently extending charitable deductions for contributions of food, passed with bipartisan support. Today, the House passed America’s Small Business Tax Relief Act of 2015, which makes permanent tax provisions that help family farms and small businesses.
“These are bipartisan, common sense bills that will help get our economy back on track,” said Congressman David Rouzer (NC-7). “The House is making job creation and tax relief a priority, while the President continues to stand in the way. He should do what is right and sign these bills.”
