Supporting Small Businesses and Charitable Giving
Washington, DC – This week U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) voted in support of several bills to help small businesses and encourage charitable giving.
“Hard work and charitable giving are some of our Nation’s core values, and we should be doing all we can to encourage strengthening and continuing these values – particularly when too many Americans are still struggling in today’s economy,” said Johnson.
“Over half of America’s work force is employed by a small business,” Johnson continued. “In fact, seven out of every 10 new jobs comes from a small business. They are the backbone of our economy, and in order to help small businesses grow and invest in the future, the best thing we can do is get Washington out of the way by easing the tax and regulatory burden these job creators face. The Small Business Regulatory Flexibility Improvements Act, the Unfunded Mandates Information and Transparency Act, and the America’s Small Business Tax Relief Act do just that. I am also proud to have supported several bills to permanently incentivize charitable giving.
“I encourage the Senate to follow our lead in the House by taking up these important bills. American families and small business owners want, need, and deserve no less.”
