Arlington, VA: The National Grocers Association (NGA) released the following statement after the Expiring Provisions Improvement Reform and Efficiency (EXPIRE) Act was passed by the Senate Finance Committee earlier today:
"NGA commends Chairman Wyden and Ranking Member Hatch for working together and passing a responsible tax extenders package. While it is our preference to see fair and balanced comprehensive tax reform enacted, it is critical to give certainty to job creators and employees by extending many of the tax provisions in its absence. Renewing important tax extenders will have a positive impact on the independent grocery industry, allowing it to continue to grow and contribute to the U.S. economy," said Peter J. Larkin, President and CEO of NGA. "We will continue to monitor the bill as it moves through the Senate and will hope for a similar outcome for these tax extenders in the House of Representatives."
The bill addresses every provision included in a letter from Larkin sent to all members of the Finance Committee on April 2, 2014.
