NTU urges all Senators to vote “YES” on the following amendments to S. Amdt. 891, the fiscal year (FY) 2021 reconciliation legislation, should the amendments receive consideration on the Senate floor.
- Amendment #947 from Sen. Thune (R-SD): On remote worker taxation. This amendment would ensure that individuals working remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic are not subject to taxation in two different states. This has been a bipartisan push from Sen. Thune and others for months. Votes on this amendment will be significantly weighted in our annual rating of Congress.
- Amendment #957 from Sen. Daines (R-MT): Strikes increases to the Affordable Care Act’s premium tax credits (PTCs). These modifications are billed as temporary for reconciliation purposes, but there will surely be an attempt to make them permanent—an expensive and dubious proposition for taxpayers.
NTU urges all Senators to vote “NO” on the following amendments to S. Amdt. 891, the fiscal year (FY) 2021 reconciliation legislation, should the amendments receive consideration on the Senate floor.
- Amendment #972 from Sen. Sanders (I-VT): Increases the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour within four years; the Senate parliamentarian determined that this provision does not comply with requirements for the Senate reconciliation process.
