On Tuesday, May 6, 2015 Senators Pat Roberts (R-KS) and Maria Cantwell (D-WA) introduced S. 1193, bipartisan legislation to permanently extend the 9 percent Credit floor and enact and similar permanent floor for 4 percent allocated Credits.
In an accompanying press release, Senator Cantwell noted “The Low-Income Housing Tax Credit supports more than 90,000 jobs each year nationwide and has helped leverage nearly $100 billion in private investment in these critically needed affordable housing units.” Senator Roberts added “I have long supported the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit and will push for its inclusion in any tax reform plan to be considered by Congress.”
