Senate Republican “Jobs Through Growth Act” Omits WOTC Proposals

Last week Senate Republicans announced their Jobs Through Growth Act, their version of a jobs plan that would amend President Obama’s proposed American Jobs Act. Senator John McCain offers a preview of the Senate proposal on his website.
As pointed out by Paul Suplizio, President of the WOTC Coalition, the Senate Republican plan omits the WOTC-expanding provisions of President Obama’s jobs bill. On the other hand, Senator Scott Brown has introduced an amendment proposing to increase the WOTC amount hiring for qualifying veterans while also extending benefits to non-profit employers who could use WOTC to offset the FICA tax.
