Washington (June 9, 2003) -- Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Committee on Finance, won Senate passage of a compromise version of his legislation to give Americans more family tax relief. The Senate's vote resulted after Grassley worked this week to get a bipartisan consensus on a version of his legislation that could pass the Senate and has the best chance of House passage.

"There's a strong feeling in the Senate that we need more family tax relief, especially for low-income families," Grassley said. "My thought is, let's strike while the iron is hot. We can help create jobs and help people provide for their families. I'd like to have even more family tax relief, and I'll continue to work toward more, but some extra tax relief is better than none."
