Expanding The EITC For Childless Workers: An Important Step To Make Work Pay

Source: Aviva Aron-Dine and Arloc Sherman, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, October 10, 2007

From the summary:
A number of bills currently before Congress would expand the component of the Earned Income Tax Credit available to low-income working adults who are not raising minor children. The most recent congressional proposal (H.R. 2951), introduced by Representatives John Yarmuth and Keith Ellison (and cosponsored by seven other representatives), is the most expansive of these proposals. Legislation to expand the childless workers’ EITC also has been introduced this year by Senators Barack Obama and Evan Bayh, and by Senator John Kerry and Representative Bill Pascrell.
