Americans for Prosperity is proud to join over 35 industry groups and advocacy organizations in supporting recent calls for a vote this year on Congressman Brady’s “Death Tax Repeal Act,” HR 2429. Led by the Family Business Coalition, the coalition sent the following letter to House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp and Congressman Kevin Brady, applauding the lawmakers for their repeal of the death tax.

The estate tax made recent news when Congressman Brady’s Death Tax Repeal Act surpassed 218 bipartisan cosponsors, reaching a majority of the House of Representatives. Senator John Thune carries the mirror bill in the US Senate with 37 cosponsors. (Click here to read Americans for Prosperity’s letter of support for the Brady-Thune legislation.)
