Rodney is listening to families, and regularly visits local businesses, and understands the very real anxiety Americans have about a volatile stock market, a weakened housing market, and higher gas prices. During these uncertain times, Frelinghuysen will continue to focus on making sure our families and local companies are able to keep more of their hard earned money to better provide for their families and to reinvest in their businesses. Recognized as a "Hero of the Taxpayer" for his work in delivering real tax relief to all families and individuals, Frelinghuysen helped eliminate the marriage penalty, extend the child tax credit, and increase tax reductions for businessmen and women. Now he is working to eliminate the alternative minimum tax (AMT) that hits the middle class and local small businesses hardest. There's much work still to be done to address the high cost of living in New Jersey. Congressman Frelinghuysen has introduced a bill designed to increase transparency and accountability in the energy market. The measure will help lower gas prices by better preventing market manipulation, speculation and price distortion.
