This week in Congress our focus continued to be on JOBS. In this newsletter you will find information about the Small Business Tax Cut Act we passed this week. You will also find an excerpt from my op-ed on the economic impact of golf in North Carolina and H.R. 2718 - The Disaster Tax Act of 2011.
I continue to monitor the status of the proposed I-95 toll which would be a job killer for businesses up and down the interstate. Below you will find a link to a News 14 story that includes some comments I made regarding this issue.
On Monday, we observed the one year anniversary of the April 16 storms that devastated parts of the Second District and the state. The damage to life and property was great, but the heroism and generosity we saw from the people of the Second District in response to the storms showed the strength of our resolve. My full statement on the anniversary can be found on my website.
