WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, released the following statement upon passage of the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act which permanently renews vital tax credits.

“I’ve heard directly from folks in Southwest Michigan who want nothing more than certainty in the tax code, and that’s precisely what we did today with the passage of the PATH Act,” said Upton. “This certainty will prevent tax increases, help create good paying local jobs, boost our economy, and lays the groundwork for meaningful, bipartisan tax reform in 2016 – something I’ve long supported. Today is a big-time win for our local small business community and for hard-working folks across the country.”
