A few New York congressmen are recipients of a new award from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.


Two New York congressional representatives are reintroducing legislation to fully restore the state and local tax deduction that was curtailed by federal tax legislation President Trump signed in December 2017. The two lawmakers had introduced a similar measure this time last year.

Two New York Congress members have introduced a bipartisan bill to restore the SALT, or state and local tax deduction. The federal tax legislation President Trump signed last month curtails the deduction that many depend on in high-tax states like New York.
