Today, Representatives Suzan DelBene (WA-01), Rosa DeLauro (CT-03), and Ritchie Torres (NY-15), alongside Senators Sherrod Brown (OH), Cory Booker (NJ), and Michael Bennet (CO) released the following statement on the importance of passing Child Tax Credit (CTC) permanence in Congress:

“Expansion of the Child Tax Credit is the most significant policy to come out of Washington in generations, and Congress has an historic opportunity to provide a lifeline to the middle class and to cut child poverty in half on a permanent basis. No recovery will be complete unless our tax code provides a sustained pathway to economic prosperity for working families and children. Permanent expansion of CTC will continue to be our priority.”
