Congressmen Mike Turner (R-OH) and Chaka Fattah (D-PA) are circulating a sign-on letter urging timely Congressional action on the New Markets Tax Credit. Last year, they also led a letter to Ways and Means urging an extension of the NMTC, and followed up on that letter with an Op-Ed in Roll Call urging their colleagues to take the time during the August recess to visit a NMTC-financed project. Below is a link to the current letter and Dear Colleague.
The deadline for signatures on the letter is close of business on Tuesday, June 16th. Please take a moment to contact your member of Congress and ask them to sign-on to this letter and voice their support for a NMTC extension. In particular, you may want to focus your advocacy efforts on the Members of Congress who signed last year’s NMTC support letter. You can find that list in the link below:
