On Tuesday, April 17, Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) attended a BCFC policy roundtable and provided remarks on H.R. 2569 the "Free File Program Act of 2011" impacting the IRS and tax preparation services, products and data.
Not only is Rep. Roskam the lead sponsor of H.R. 2569, but he is also the Chief Deputy Majority Whip for House Republicans. BCFC supports H.R. 2569, which would make the Free File program permanent and provides for a public private partnership as a helpful option for implementation. Although the IRS Free File program is almost a decade old, popular, and an important element of the IRS electronic filing initiative, it could be terminated by the IRS without review and approval by Congress in favor of other electronic filing programs, including programs in which the IRS would control tax preparation and electronic filing services.
BCFC held a policy roundtable January 18, 2012 with Rep. Bobby Schilling (R-IL) to discuss his sponsorship of H.R. 2570, the “Rock Island Arsenal Public Private Partnership Act” and H.R. 3376, the “Saving Over Spending Act”. H.R. 2570 was added to the House 2012 Defense Authorization (HR 1540). Rep. Schilling not only is a member of the House Small Business and Agriculture Committees, but he is also a member of the Armed Services Committee.
BCFC held a policy roundtable with Rep. Bill Johnson (R-OH) to discuss his sponsorship of H.R. 2752, the “BLM Live Internet Auctions Act”. H.R. 2752 allows BLM to auction public lands and property for disposal with the auctioneering to be contracted out. Rep. Johnson not only chairs the House Veterans’ Affairs Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, but he also is a member on the House Natural Resources and Foreign Affairs Committees.
BCFC will held a policy roundtable with Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS) to discuss his sponsorship of H.R. 3090, the “EDA Elimination Act” and H.R. 3308, the “Energy Freedom and Economic Prosperity Act”. Rep. Pompeo is a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee
