Washington, DC – This morning, Representative Harley Rouda (CA-48) joined 27 of his colleagues as original cosponsors of the bipartisan Stop the Attack on Local Taxpayers (SALT) Act, introduced by Congressman Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-N.J.-09). Said Rouda, “The people of Orange County should not be taxed twice on the same dollar. Last year’s tax bill gave enormous tax giveaways to the largest corporations and very wealthiest households, and paid for it with unfair tax burdens on California’s working families. The SALT Act is the product of Democrats and Republicans putting our heads together to make a fairer tax code for middle class families in our states, and I’ll be pushing for its swift passage.”
