Alexander Votes in Favor of HIRE Act

Posted on March 17, 2010

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement regarding his vote in favor of the Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment (HIRE) Act: 

“I voted for this bill because, without increasing the federal debt, it permits small businesses to deduct their capital investments from their taxes, which gives them more money to create jobs; provides tax incentives for businesses to hire unemployed workers; and provides needed funds for our highways.”
