The latest on WOTC - good news on the horizon!

From Paul Suplizio, President of the WOTC Coalition

Both houses of Congress have now adjourned until December 1 for Thanksgiving recess.


House and Senate leaders are staying in town to wind up talks for a bill to fund the government and a tax extenders bill.


Republicans and Democrats are far apart on extenders to be made permanent, which is the main hold-up; but Speaker Boehner, Senator Reid, and Senator McConnell are becoming engaged in these talks and this  should speed up progress for a deal.


When Congress returns there will be eight legislative days remaining in the lame duck session, assuming adjournment on December 11th


Leaders can keep Congress in session if they haven’t completed “must-do” bills like government appropriations and the tax extenders, but there’s a strong desire to end the lame duck as soon as possible and start over in the new Congress on January 6th.
