Congratulations Are In Order
So many WOTC supporters helped assure WOTC be included in the bi-partisan bill! Senator Baucus brought on this success and was willing to approach individual Republican senators and Senator Hatch.Paul E. Suplizio, President of the WOTC Coalition stated, “There is a House bill on the Senate calendar that’s ready to go to the floor anytime the Majority Leader Calls it up: H.R. 4078, the Red Tape Reduction and Small Business Job Creation Act. This bill can be amended with the extenders language, passed and sent to the House. We are in touch with Senator Reid’s office about this.”Suplizo is keeping us informed on whether the majority leader will be willing to fit the bill into the Senate floor schedule after it passes the senate finance committee today.
If the bill is reported and there is no action taken before the recess, we must continue to work on securing its passage once Congress returns on September 10th. Congress will head home in early October and will not be back in session until after the election, so the 15 days of floor time will be crucial!
