Camp: President, Senate Need to Act on R&D Jobs Bill

May 09, 2014

Washington, DC – Today, after a strong bipartisan House vote to pass a permanent research and development tax credit – a credit that has existed on a “temporary” basis since 1981 – Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) issued the following statement. 

“Short-term tax policies aren’t helping businesses hire new workers or grow the economy.  It is time for some permanency and stability in the tax code.  Let’s be honest with the American people and the businesses and workers who rely on this credit – it is here to stay.  The R&D credit has broad bipartisan support and the Senate should take up this bill that actually strengthens the economy and helps hardworking taxpayers.”
