“As we advance an Opportunity Economy, I’m reminded of what makes Americans so exceptional – it’s that spirit of generosity that can be found in homes and schools and hospitals and hearts across America.”

WASHINGTON, DC – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) issued the following statement today after the House passed H.R. 644, the America Gives More Act of 2015, which encourages charitable giving by permanently extending and expanding charitable deductions for contributions of food.

“As we advance an Opportunity Economy, I’m reminded of what makes Americans so exceptional – it’s that spirit of generosity that can be found in homes and schools and hospitals and hearts across America.  In fact, over 95 percent of households give to charity. That’s why I’m proud to advance real solutions to encourage the charitable giving that improves so many people’s lives. This legislation simplifies our tax code and promotes charitable contributions to organizations that care for and feed hungry Americans around the United States. This solution fosters our country’s boundless spirit of generosity, and it helps make life better for Americans in need in every corner of this country.”
