9-17-10: Sen. Debbie Stabenow re: HCTC extension at 80%

Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) has informed the DSRA that legislative language to extend the Health Coverage Tax Credit (HCTC) at 80% has been included in the Senate bill to extend the Bush tax cuts. 

Senator Stabenow, who serves on the Senate Finance Committee that is responsible for tax legislation in the Senate, said this was an important first step toward extending the HCTC at 80%.  To become law, the Senate and House must pass identical legislation, and it must be signed into law by the President.

Senator Stabenow, thank you for your support.
