Braley highlighting new legislative effort to renew, expand tax cut for families who adopt 


Washington, DC – On Thursday in Davenport and Dubuque, Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) will hold events to discuss a legislative effort he’s launching to renew and expand a tax credit for families that choose to adopt children. Braley will be joined at the stops by local adoption agency representatives.


When Congress returns next week, Braley will introduce the Making Adoption Affordable Act, a bill to permanently extend a federal tax credit for qualified adoption expenses.  The legislation also expands the tax credit to $13,360 and makes refundable, allowing more families to take full advantage of it.


Braley will also attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Camanche Fire and Police station.  Braley secured funding for the department to purchase a new emergency generator.
