Worker, Homeownership and Business Assistance Act of 2009

House Passes Worker, Homeownership, and Business Assistance Act of 2009

The U.S. House of Representatives approved essential legislation to stimulate the economy and provide stability to American families. The House Passed H.R. 3548, the Worker, Homeownership and Business Assistance Act of 2009 by an overwhelmingly bipartisan vote of 403 to 12. President Obama signed the legislation into law on November 6, 2009. The legislation will help continue America’s economic recovery by extending unemployment benefits for millions of workers looking for jobs, as well as extending, expanding and improving the homebuyer tax credit, and providing tax relief for military families and businesses. Many of the provisions in today’s legislation originated in the Committee on Ways and Means, and Committee leaders offered the following statements upon passage:

"Passage of this bill will give critical benefits to the millions of unemployed workers struggling in the current downturn, giving them some measure of relief while they search for the next opportunity to build a brighter future for their families,” said Ways and Means Committee Chairman Charles B. Rangel (D-NY). “This legislation also extends the homebuyer tax credit and provides tax relief for struggling businesses to build upon recent gains in the housing market and give American companies a foundation for future growth."
