Representative Dan Maffei (D-NY) introduced his first piece of legislation as Central New York's new Representative in the 113th Congress today. Maffei introduced The Middle Class Payroll Tax Relief Act, a bill to temporarily extend the two percent payroll tax cut through the end of 2013. The proposed change would benefit over 10 million hardworking New Yorkers in 2013 and would save most Central New York families over $1,000 per year.
"Today I introduced the Middle Class Payroll Tax Relief Act which puts over $1,000 a year back into the pockets of hardworking Central New Yorker families" said Representative Dan Maffei . "We are not out of this recession yet. Central New York families deserve to keep more of the money they earn, especially during these tough economic times. Growing the middle class, creating jobs, and fixing the economy are my top priorities and Central New Yorkers need this relief right now."
