This week the House will take up the Small Business Tax Cut Act (HR 9), introduced by Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA). This bill will extend a 20 percent tax cut to American small businesses, which breaks down to more than 77,000 South Carolina businesses that employ more than 750,000 people.

We will also vote on the Sportsman's Heritage Act (HR 4089) by Chairman Jeff Miller (R-FL). This legislation brings together four separate bills (HR 991, HR 1558, HR 2834 and H.R. 3440) promoting our nation's hunting traditions.

Finally, today we are voting on a resolution honoring Lena Horne, which I was proud to work alongside my colleague Congressman Alcee Hastings (D-FL) to bring to the floor.
