Congressman Leonard Lance (NJ-07) today issued the following statement applauding House passage of the Student & Family Tax Simplification Act (H.R. 3393) and the Child Tax Credit Improvement Act (H.R. 4935):
"The House this week passed two measures designed to help Americans struggling with the high costs of raising a family. We acted to reform the child tax credit and ensure it keeps up with inflation. And earlier this week we worked together to pass an education bill that will make college more affordable for students and their families. Both measures -- passed with broad, bipartisan support -- will allow working families to keep more of what they earn."
