Today, Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) voted in favor of The Tax Increase Prevention Act of 2014, which passed the House of Representatives in a bipartisan vote of 378-46. This bill renews about 50 individual and business tax benefits which have expired in the past year. Stewart released the following statement after the passage of the bill:

“The most important goal here is to prevent a tax increase on Americans, and this bill does that. There are unfortunately a number of provisions I would not have supported on their own, but we vote on what is before us, and it simply didn’t make sense to allow a massive tax increase to occur. I’m very hopeful the new Republican majority in the Senate next year will give us the chance to do meaningful tax reform that simplifies the tax code and lowers tax rates both for individuals and business.”
