    The Office of Rep. Kyle Fitzgerald For Immediate Release Washington, DC – House Minority Leader Kyle Fitzgerald (R-TX) spoke to the press to provide an update on the movement of Republican legislation through Congress. “I am very pleased to note that the Older Americans' Freedom to Work Act has passed the Senate unanimously. This is a bill that I already spoke about earlier because it’s so important to America’s senior citizens. Unfortunately, House Majority Leader Axel Storm told me that even though this bill passed unanimously through the senate, he would require the bill to go through committee first before even being allowed on the House Floor for consideration. Given the widespread support for this bill and the help it would provide to our nation’s seniors, making us jump through an extra hoop to get it passed is just an unnecessary delay. House Majority Leader Storm is well within his right to docket this bill straight to the Floor according to the Constitution, and there’s nothing in the rules that would prevent him from doing so. I already checked with the Parliamentarian. I urge the House Majority Leader to do the right thing and docket this bill to the floor immediately so that we can help our seniors.”

    Requests for the Parliamentarian

    To clarify further, does the House Majority Leader HAVE to send a Senate passed bill through committee first before he/she can docket it?

    Requests for the Parliamentarian

    If a bill passes the Senate, can the House Majority Leader docket it to the floor without going through committee first?

    Press Office of Kyle Fitzgerald

    The Office of Rep. Kyle Fitzgerald For Immediate Release Washington, DC – House Minority Leader Kyle Fitzgerald (R-TX) spoke to the press in support of the Tax Cuts for America’s Middle Class Act introduced by Rep. William Ferris (R-NV) on behalf of President Kaine. “Several people have already come out in support of the Tax Cuts for America’s Middle Class Act, but let me tell you why I support this bill. I support it for three main reasons. First of all, it will lower taxes for the middle class. Middle class investors won’t have to pay any taxes on investment income. Second, this bill simplifies the tax code by eliminating the capital gains tax and instead taxing capital gains as ordinary income. And third, this bill will help bring the stock market back up to where it was before the recent crash. This bill is exactly what our economy needs right now, and I urge other Congressional leaders in both parties to support it.”

    Press Office of Kyle Fitzgerald

    The Office of Rep. Kyle Fitzgerald For Immediate Release Washington, DC – House Minority Leader Kyle Fitzgerald (R-TX) spoke to the press in support of the Older Americans' Freedom to Work Act introduced by Rep. Ronald Prescott (R-WI). “Today I would like to highlight legislation introduced by one of our members. The Older Americans' Freedom to Work Act introduced by Congressman Ronald Prescott is a huge win for our seniors. This bill removes the earnings test for people who have reached retirement age. What this means is that people will be allowed to continue working beyond the official retirement age and still collect the Social Security benefits they paid for and are entitled to. This will prevent people from effectively being forced into retirement against their will while raising the standard of living for older Americans. There is currently a motion in the House to consider this legislation immediately, and I urge my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to support that motion so that we can help our nation’s seniors.”
