WASHINGTON (September 13, 2021) –  The House Ways and Means Committee unveiled its list of revenue priorities and tax reforms (or “pay-fors”) it will rely on to fund the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill.

Statement from Sandra Purohit, director of federal advocacy for the national, nonpartisan business group E2 (Environmental Entrepreneurs):

“The cost of going small is too high. Climate change is already costing the U.S. economy tens of billions every year.

“Partially restoring the tax rate for large corporations so America can build an economy to withstand climate change and create millions of good-paying jobs, is the fiscally responsible thing to do.”
