    Vote: Family Leave Tax Credit Act

    The committee will now vote on this bill. 24 hours for voting. Aye
  4. The Chair withdraws this bill from the docket due to the absence of a plain English summary.
  5. Upon further reflection, the points raised by the minority members are well taken. The Chair withdraws this bill from the committee's docket.
  6. Madam Chairwoman, The schools that would be subject to this grant program aren't simply the author's favorite schools, but historic African-American land-grant colleges and universities. These schools have played a vital role in providing higher education to African-Americans, particularly in the fields of food and agricultural sciences. As the average age of farmers and producers continues to rise, and as so many African-Americans still find themselves socially and economically disadvantaged, these schools are more relevant than they've ever been. African-Americans need more paths to a middle class lifestyle, and America needs more farmers and producers -- the younger the better. By addressing both issues with more funding to these schools so they can continue to provide this needed education, this bill is a win-win and should enjoy bipartisan support. I yield.
  7. The Chair interprets the following to be a sufficient plain English summary: The request to withdraw this bill from the docket is therefore denied.
