Rep. Ami Bera Releases Statement on Passage of Bipartisan Tax Package

This evening, Rep. Ami Bera, M.D. (CA-06) released a statement following his vote to pass H.R. 7024 - Tax Relief for American Families and Workers Act of 2024, bipartisan tax legislation that delivers critical wins to hardworking families and small businesses in Sacramento County. The legislation passed by a vote of 357-70 on the House floor.

“Tonight, I joined a strong majority of members on both sides of the aisle to pass a bipartisan tax package that will make meaningful changes to the tax code to uplift hardworking families, empower small businesses, and bolster American innovation.

“The package includes several pro-growth, pro-family tax priorities I’ve been fighting to deliver throughout my time in office, including an expansion of the Child Tax Credit and the Low Income Housing Tax Credit, incentivizing research and development, supporting small businesses, and strengthening our trade relationship with Taiwan.

“This package is an important step in the right direction that will put money back in the pockets of hardworking families. I urge the Senate to take up this bill quickly so we can get this tax relief signed into law soon. It’s estimated that 16 million children will benefit from this package in the next year, including 49,000 in my district. 

“Despite the dysfunction and chaos that has defined this Congress, this bipartisan bill demonstrates the progress we can make when lawmakers come together to find common ground.”
