Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today voted in favor of the tax extenders legislation, which extends expired business and individual tax provisions through the end of this year.
Feinstein released the following statement:
“With passage of this legislation comes much-needed certainty for taxpayers as they prepare to file their 2014 returns, and I believe American businesses and individuals are better off as a result. Whether it is supporting small businesses as they create jobs, farmers as they invest in essential equipment or homeowners and working families struggling to make ends meet, this legislation is positive for many areas of our economy.
“In particular, I am pleased to see the extension of the research tax credit, from which many innovative California firms benefit, as well as provisions that support investments already made in wind, biodiesel and other renewable energy sources, a critical aspect of combatting climate change.”
