Congress Enacts Legislation to Fight Child Trafficking, Strengthen Child Welfare Protections

2014/09/19

Washington, DC – Last night, the U.S. Senate approved bipartisan child welfare legislation aimed at reducing child sex trafficking, increasing adoptions and improving child support collections.  The legislation was approved by the House on July 23, 2014.

Specifically, the Preventing Sex Trafficking and Strengthening Families Act (H.R. 4980) would encourage states to combat sex trafficking among youth in foster care; promote normalcy for foster youth; help move more children from foster care into adoptive homes or the homes of relatives; and, increase the amount of child support provided to families in which one parent resides outside of the U.S.  The legislation is fully paid for.

In June, House Committee on Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich., and Ranking Member Sander Levin, D-Mich., along with Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden, D-Ore., and Ranking Member Orrin G. Hatch, R-Utah, announced this bipartisan legislation.  The legislation, which ultimately passed both the Senate and House reconciled differences on three bills previously approved by the House (H.R. 1896, H.R. 3205, and H.R. 4058) and the Senate Finance Committee (S. 1876, S. 1877, and S. 1878). 

The following are key provisions of the Preventing Sex Trafficking and Strengthening Families Act.  The bill was introduced in the House by Camp, Levin and House Ways and Means Human Resources Subcommittee Chairman Dave Reichert, R-Wash., and Ranking Member Lloyd Doggett, D-Texas: 

Title I: Protecting Youth at Risk of Sex Trafficking

  • Requires state child welfare agencies to identify, document, and determine appropriate services for children in foster care or who are otherwise involved in the child welfare system who are victims of child sex trafficking or at risk of becoming victims.

  • Requires state child welfare agencies to promote "normalcy" for youth in foster care allowing them to more easily participate in age appropriate social, scholastic and enrichment activities.

Title II: Improving Adoption Incentives

  • Improves the adoption incentives program and extends it for three years.  It also extends the Family Connection Grant Program for one year.

Title III: Improving International Child Support Recovery

  • Requires states to make necessary changes to implement the Hague Convention in enforcing international child support cases, increasing the amount of child support collected for families.

  • Requires data standardization within the child support enforcement program, improving administration.  This would streamline the child support programs with federal programs including Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), child welfare, Unemployment Insurance and food assistance programs such as SNAP.

  • Requires all states to implement electronic processing of income withholding, as most states already do; this will improve the collection of child support and save taxpayers $48 million over 10 years.

  • Creates a task force to explore ways to improve the effectiveness of the child support enforcement program. 

Overall, the entire bill would save $1 million over 5 years and $19 million over 10 years. 

House Ways and Means Chairman Camp said: “We must do all we can to protect and improve the lives of children in foster care.  This bill will help protect vulnerable youth from becoming victims of the horrible crime of sex trafficking, as well as ensure that foster youth have a better chance of living safe, healthy and normal lives.  Importantly, it will encourage more adoptions of children in foster care so they can live in permanent, loving homes.  I am pleased we have done this in a bipartisan, bicameral way so this bill can quickly become law.”

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Wyden said:  “This sends a clear message that states can’t turn a blind eye to child sex trafficking, and that there’s a responsibility to identify victims and build a systemic response.  This law will help also foster children build stable relationships with permanent families, where they are much less likely to fall victim to pimps and traffickers and other predators.  I urge the President to quickly sign this legislation which Congress has enacted with overwhelming support and will help keep vulnerable children from ending up in the streets, homeless shelters or the juvenile justice system by creating permanent, healthy, and supportive relationships.

House Ways and Means Ranking Member Levin said: “This legislation will help protect vulnerable children from exploitation, move foster children into permanent homes and strengthen child support enforcement across international borders.  I hope we can use a similar bipartisan process to further strengthen families, reduce hardship and safeguard children.”

Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Hatch said: “This bill takes crucial steps to improve the lives of children and youth in the foster care system who are vulnerable to sex trafficking and other negative outcomes.  I am pleased that a number of provisions I introduced last year in my bill, I O Youth, are included in this legislation.  While there is more to be done to reform child welfare, such as ending the over-reliance on group homes, this bill takes a critical step forward. “

House Ways and Means Human Resources Subcommittee Chairman Reichert said: “The Preventing Sex Trafficking and Strengthening Families Act makes key changes to our nation's child welfare system to improve the lives of kids in foster care.  We have committed to protect these children and we are responsible for their safety and success, yet for too long we have not lived up to that that promise.  This legislation will help protect children from the horrors of sex trafficking and give them opportunities to lead more normal and successful lives.  It also encourages states to move children into permanent, loving homes more quickly.  Passage of this bill is a victory for America's children, and the President needs to sign this legislation without delay.”

House Ways and Means Human Resources Subcommittee Ranking Member Doggett said: “Much more is needed to protect vulnerable children, but this bill represents a constructive step forward.”

Senate Approves Bipartisan, Bicameral Legislation to Improve Post-Acute Care for Medicare Beneficiaries

2014/09/19

Washington, DC  – The U.S. Senate on Thursday passed the "Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation Act of 2014 (IMPACT Act)," bipartisan legislation that will strengthen and improve post-acute care for Medicare beneficiaries while bringing about more accountable, quality-driven benefits to patients.  The House passed the bill on Tuesday.

The IMPACT Act of 2014 also strengthens Medicare’s oversight of hospice care by ensuring that Medicare dollars are spent efficiently and that high quality care is provided.

“This bill is critical to driving fundamental reform of care for seniors after a hospitalization.  Working together in an open, transparent way, the Ways and Means and Senate Finance Committees were able to produce a bill that will ensure our seniors get the highest quality and most cost effective care possible,” Camp said.  ”The IMPACT Act represents the beginning of a much larger conversation.  We owe it to our seniors to ensure the Medicare program is able to provide the seamless care that we all expect.  This bill is a necessary first step and lays down the foundation of reform that will continue to evolve over the next several years.”

“This legislation aims to significantly improve post-acute care by building on the positive strides we have made in recent years toward more accountable, quality-driven health care,” Levin said.  “The bipartisan, bicameral legislation, crafted with my colleagues on the Ways and Means and Senate Finance Committees, lays the groundwork for enabling Medicare providers, patients, and their families to make health care decisions that work for them.”

“This bipartisan bill is an important and welcome accomplishment in our quest to provide patients, consumers and the federal government the best tools for evaluating the quality of care patients receive and the way our health care dollars are spent.  It’s also is an example of how members of Congress from both parties and both Houses can come together to address an important need.  I’m looking forward as we build on this experience to achieve additional reforms,” Wyden said.

"Thanks to the IMPACT Act, Medicare patients now have peace of mind that they will have access to the right kind of care at the right time after receiving treatment in a hospital," Hatch said.  "This is smart policy that will help lay the groundwork for further reforms to the Medicare program to help guarantee its solvency for future generations.  I'm proud to have worked with my colleagues in both the Senate and House on this important initiative and look forward to continuing with our efforts to strengthen and improve the Medicare program for America's seniors."

The IMPACT Act moves forward on the long-standing policy goal of collecting standardized data from Medicare post-acute care (PAC) providers.  It will align Medicare PAC providers and create a more accountable, quality-driven PAC benefit.

Specifically, the IMPACT Act requires data standardization that enables Medicare to:

  • Compare quality across different PAC settings;

  • Improve hospital and PAC discharge planning; and,

  • Use this information to reform PAC payments (via site neutral or bundled payments or some other reform) while ensuring continued beneficiary access to the most appropriate setting of care.

This information will allow future payment reforms to be driven by quality and efficiency while protecting beneficiary access to appropriate services.

The legislation that now goes to the White House is largely a product of a discussion draft in March that was shaped by input the lawmakers received from the post-acute care community.  Last year, the lawmakers invited interested stakeholders to submit ideas on how to strengthen post-acute care, a variety of health care services that support a patient’s continued recovery from a serious illness. 

Post-acute care includes services in Long Term Care Hospitals (LTCHs), Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRFs), Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs), and Home Health Agencies (HHAs).  The IMPACT Act is based on the policy and legislative recommendations of more than 70 stakeholders in the health care community and will help lay the groundwork for the modernization of PAC services within Medicare to ensure the program works better for beneficiaries and taxpayers alike.

Chairman Camp's Remarks on the Official Portrait Unveiling

2014/09/18

There are many, many people in this room I want to thank for their hard work, the countless hours they have dedicated to advancing the issues of the Fourth District of Michigan and the Ways and Means Committee, and the advice, counsel and friendship you all have given to me over the years.  

Thank you Speaker Boehner for those kind remarks.  John and I came to the House of Representatives in the same year, and I have had the honor of calling him a good friend for the past twenty-four years.  His leadership and guidance in the party is part of the reason I went from a Member on the lower dais – in fact I had the least seniority on the entire Committee in 1993 – to the man holding the gavel for the last four years.

And thanks to Leader McCarthy for kicking-off this event.  Kevin and I are close friends as well.  His optimism and inclusive leadership style is what will undoubtedly help move our country forward.  In his former role as Whip and now as our Leader, Kevin has ensured that Committee Chairmen can run their Committees and have a seat at the table.  And, Kevin, thanks for always saving me a seat and for being nothing like Frank Underwood in House of Cards.

To my personal congressional staff and my four chiefs of staff who are here today – John Guzik, Elizabeth Harkins Meade, Behrends Foster, and Jim Brandell – my deepest thanks and appreciation.

To the staff of the Committee on Ways and Means and our leadership team – Jon Traub, Jennifer Safavian, Warren Payne and Sage Eastman – I am so proud of all that we have accomplished together.  Thank you.

It is absolutely an honor to have my portrait hung in this room.  Ander, thank you for emceeing this event and for all that you and Kitty have meant to Nancy and me over the years.  Thank you, Becky Anderson for being a great friend and for chairing my portrait committee.  And, of course, my deep appreciation to the artist, Leslie Bowman, whose talents brought this portrait to life.

It is safe to say that I never thought this was possible.  In fact, I so wanted to be a Member of the Ways and Means Committee that I called a former President and native Michigander, Gerald Ford, to make some calls for me – and he did.  There is nothing like having a former President of the United States in your corner.

I have always believed in good policy and that it was my job to try and make Washington work.  That is a belief that I held when I first got on the Committee.  I was in the minority and Dan Rostenkowski was Chairman.  And while we got along, keeping my head down and studying policy wasn’t just a professional tactic, it was for my own safety.  

In the minority I went to work on welfare reform.  That was no easy task.  Before welfare reform was eventually signed into law, we had to win the majority, then it was vetoed twice, and it divided our Leadership right until the end.  

Now, that may have dissuaded some, but a group of us refused to stop pushing for welfare reform.  Years after the effort began, it was finally signed into law.  Despite the obstacles, welfare reform ultimately passed with overwhelming bipartisan support, helping millions achieve the American dream – moving them off welfare rolls and into the workforce.    

It was the first of many challenges I would face in my career to get good policy done.  However, I never anticipated just how frequent these challenges would be.  Albert Einstein once said, “The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax.”  Well, how about reforming it?  

As you all know, this Committee put in years of work and hundreds of hours huddled in this room holding hearing after hearing, walking through the tax code with Tom Barthold and the staff of Joint Committee on Taxation, all with the common goal of making the tax code simpler and fairer for all Americans.  

And, while I may be from Michigan, I commend everyone for surviving the arctic temperatures this room can drop to.  In my defense, the thermostat is actually controlled by the Pentagon.
 
While some may have compared the task of reforming the tax code to Sisyphus rolling the boulder up the hill only to have it roll back down again, I can stand here today and say “we did it.”  We produced a comprehensive overhaul of the tax code that grew the economy and created jobs for American workers.  

And, while it may not become law this year, I know it will get done.  And, when it does happen, it will be the work of this Committee and the staff that set the blueprint for a tax code that will put America, and its workers, back on top.

We did a lot of good in this room.  From passing job creating free trade agreements to drafting a health care alternative that actually lowered premiums.  But nothing may compare to the work we did when it comes to adoption and children in foster care – ensuring hundreds of thousands of kids were raised in safe, permanent and loving homes.  

And that's what being Chairman is about to me.  It’s about providing a vision for this great country, one that will leave our children and grandchildren with more opportunities for a successful life – after all, that is the American Dream.  

Reflecting over my years in this body, and sitting in that chair, I feel an overriding sense of pride that I did all I could to support that vision.  The many people who have supported me along the way made this honor and privilege possible.  And what a journey it has been.

I want to thank my wife, Nancy, my mother Norma, and my family who are here today to be with me.  It is their support and love, and that of my children – Andrew, Lauren and Hadley, who are all at school today – that has given me the strength to pursue the privilege of being not only a Member of Congress, but also the Chairman of the Committee on Ways and Means.   

Thank you all for being here today, it has been more than I could have ever imagined.  Thank you, and God Bless you and God Bless the United States of America.

Camp Floor Statement: H.R. 4 - The Jobs for America Act

2014/09/18

Every day, honest hardworking men and women are struggling.  Far too many families haven't seen a pay raise in years, and many have lost hope and stopped looking for work entirely.  H.R. 4, the ​Jobs For America Act, will strengthen the economy by creating more jobs with higher take-home pay.

The House has already passed dozens of bipartisan solutions that will break down burdensome regulations and promote policies that allow businesses big and small to do what they do best - grow, innovate and hire new workers.​


The bill we have before us today, the Jobs for America Act, includes provisions that have strong bipartisan support in both the House and Senate. 


The research and development credit, which has been around for over thirty years, is a proven way to incentivize U.S. companies to innovate, create new products, and invest in the U.S.  The United States is also the only country that allows important pieces of its tax code to expire on a regular basis.  Businesses cannot grow and invest when the tax code is riddled with instability and uncertainty. 


Making the R&D tax credit permanent also supports good-paying jobs.  According to the National Association of Manufacturers, 70 percent of R&D credit dollars are used to pay salaries of R&D workers.  And, the non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation estimates that making the R&D credit permanent could increase the amount of research and development American companies undertake by up to 10 percent. That translates into more workers, higher wages and increased innovation here in the U.S. 


This bill would also make permanent bonus depreciation and Section 179 expensing at higher levels, allowing businesses, farmers and ranchers to plan for the future and expand their business.  The result: more jobs and higher wages for hardworking Americans.  Tax Foundation analysis found that permanent bonus depreciation would add $182 billion to the economy, increase wages by one percent, and create 212,000 jobs.


Additionally, the bill would make permanent several expired tax provisions that benefit S corporations – a popular and important business structure used by millions of small businesses across the country.  This commonsense effort will give small businesses some much needed relief from the burdens of the tax code, allowing them to make new investments and create new jobs. 


This bill would also repeal some of the job-killing provisions in the health care law.  The current “30-hour rule” in the Affordable Care Act’s employer mandate results in fewer jobs, reduced hours and less opportunity for many Americans.  By changing the definition of full-time work, ObamaCare places an unprecedented government regulation on workers.  As a direct result, Americans across the country are having their hours cut at work and seeing smaller paychecks.  At a time when the cost of groceries, gas and health care keep increasing, lower paychecks are simply unacceptable.  


Worst of all, the law hits lower-income Americans the hardest:  2.6 million workers with a median income under $30,000 are at risk for losing jobs or hours; 89 percent of workers impacted by the rule do not have college degrees, 63 percent of which are women; and, over half have a high school diploma or less.  Simply restoring the definition of full-time work to 40 hours will ensure that the hardest working Americans do not see their hours and wages cut as a result of the health care law.  And, this bill also ensures that small businesses that hire veterans returning from service overseas who already have coverage through TRICARE or the VA aren’t counted under the employer mandate.


And, we repeal the onerous medical device tax, which is stifling medical innovation and hurting jobs.  According to a survey by AdvaMed, the medical device tax has already resulted in 14,000 jobs lost in the industry and prevented 19,000 jobs from being created.  This tax is contributing to lackluster job creation and hampering medical innovation.  We have strong bipartisan support for repeal of this tax, and to repeal it before even more detrimental harm is done to the workforce and medical community.


These are only a few among a long list of policies that will ultimately get Americans back to work and increase their quality of living.  With better jobs, higher take home pay and a stronger economy, we can offer a brighter future for our youth and ease the everyday burdens felt by individuals nationwide.  It’s time to create an America that works.

Camp & Levin Introduce Tax Technical Corrections Bill

2014/09/18

Washington, DC – Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) and Ranking Member Sander Levin (D-MI) introduced the Tax Technical Corrections Act of 2014 to make technical corrections to U.S. tax laws.  The legislation responds to various inquiries from the public and government enforcement agencies with respect to the application of tax laws, and clarifies Congressional intent of those laws.  The Senate Finance Committee approved similar legislation earlier this year.


“This bill provides important technical corrections to various tax provisions to address ambiguities that only make the tax code more confusing and complex,” said Camp.  “This tax technical corrections bill will help provide clarity both to taxpayers and to those administering the tax law, while Congress continues to work to ease the burden our broken tax code has on hardworking Americans and businesses small and large.”


“These commonsense corrections to the tax code will make it easier for American taxpayers to comply with our federal tax law,” said Levin.  “I thank the Joint Committee on Taxation for working with us to get these important corrections done.”


Text of H.R. 5528 is available here and a technical explanation of the bill prepared by the staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation is available here.

House Passes Bill to Stop Usage of Welfare Benefits to Buy Marijuana

2014/09/17

Washington, DC – On Tuesday, September 16, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 4137, the “Preserving Welfare for Needs Not Weed Act.”  The bill, introduced by Ways and Means Human Resources Subcommittee Chairman Dave Reichert (R-WA) and 11 other members of Congress, ensures that taxpayer-funded welfare benefits are not used at stores selling marijuana, such as in the states of Washington and Colorado that recently legalized such sales.  Specifically, this legislation prohibits individuals from using welfare benefit cards for purchases at marijuana stores, and forbids the withdrawal of welfare cash at in-store ATMs.

In response to the bill’s passing, Chairman Reichert said, “As a result of recent state laws legalizing recreational marijuana in Colorado and my home state of Washington, we are seeing new abuses of welfare benefits.  In these states, a person can walk into a newly opened pot shop and, thanks to an existing loophole, use their welfare benefit card to pay for marijuana.  These are federal tax dollars being spent on something that isn’t even legal at the federal level.  We must close this pot shop loophole now and make sure welfare benefits are going towards the basic necessities that individuals and families need assistance with during hard times.”

More information on H.R. 4137 can be found here.

Tiberi Opening Statement: Hearing on Private Employer Defined Benefit Pension Plans

2014/09/17

Today we examine the challenges facing employers, employees, and retirees who rely on both single and multi-employer defined benefit pension plans to help provide retirement security. These challenges pose serious threats to American workers and employers.


I know what it means for a family to lose the pension they were relying on.  When I was in high school, my dad lost his job, he lost his pension, and we lost our health care.  It was a volatile time.  I want to help families avoid that situation.


First, I have heard from a number of companies with concerns that Treasury rules relating to nondiscrimination testing for single employer defined benefit plans may cause plans to freeze and participants to lose their benefits.


In response to this issue, Ranking Member Neal and I have introduced legislation to offer nondiscrimination testing relief to closed pension plans.  It would prevent companies from having to freeze their plans and would prevent thousands of participants from losing their benefits.


There are a number of other issues currently affecting private defined benefit pensions, and it is my hope that this hearing will give us the opportunity to gain different perspectives on these issues.


The funding challenges facing multi-employer plans are threatening both retirement security for American workers and the solvency of employers whose ability to invest and create jobs is being hampered by pension obligations.


I have said for years, the cost of doing nothing is too high a price to pay.  I applaud Chairman Kline and the Education & Workforce Committee on their work on this issue as well, and I look forward to gaining as much information as possible so that we can determine an appropriate path forward to deal with these issues.

House Passes Bills Limiting IRS Power

2014/09/17

Washington, DC – Ways and Means Subcommittee on Oversight Chairman Charles Boustany, Jr., M.D. (R-LA) issued the following statement after the House of Representatives passed three bills authored by Congressman Boustany to limit the authority of the IRS in the wake of ongoing investigations into the agency’s targeting of conservative organizations.  The three House-passed bills are:

  • H.R. 5418: To prohibit officers and employees of the Internal Revenue Service from using personal email accounts to conduct official business.

  • H.R. 5419: To provide tax-exempt groups the right to an administrative appeal relating to adverse determinations of tax-exempt status.

  • H.R. 5420: To permit the release of certain information to victims regarding the status of investigations into leaks of their personal taxpayer information.

Boustany said: “The American people demand a higher ethical standard from public servants in our government.  As our investigation continues to expose the rot at the core of the IRS’s culture, we must put safeguards in place to ensure this breach of the public trust is never repeated.  Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis said, ‘sunlight is the best disinfectant.’  My bills bring the operations of the IRS into the sunlight of public scrutiny, providing greater accountability for future generations of Americans.”
