Small Business Subcommittee Chairwoman Renee Ellmers released the following statement from her office in Washington this morning:
"We are fighting to get people working again. This week the House will be voting on the Small Business Tax Cut Act - a vitally important piece of legislation that will provide much-needed support for our job creators."
"As Democrats plan to vote on tax increases this week, House Republicans are cutting taxes for our nation's small business job creators. We will continue to work to turn around the Obama economy by protecting American workers and job creators from tax increases, rolling back job killing regulations, and ending reckless Washington spending."
This morning, Congresswoman Ellmers joined Speaker Boehner, Leader Cantor, Majority Whip McCarthy, and Republican leaders to speak to reporters about the Small Business Tax Cut Act of 2012. This bill will give small businesses with fewer than 500 employees a 20% tax cut - allowing them to expand and hire more employees. The legislation is set for a vote this week.
