GOP Leaders In House Aim To Boost Philippines Typhoon Recovery Efforts

The Hill: House looks to boost Philippines typhoon recovery efforts
“Republican leaders in the House next week are expected to call up legislation aimed at increasing monetary donations to the Philippines, which last year suffered one of the strongest typhoons ever recorded in that region of the world. GOP leaders will call up the Philippines Charitable Giving Assistance Act, H.R. 3771, under a suspension of House rules. The legislation would let people make tax-deductible donations through April 15 of this year to help the Philippines recover from Typhoon Haiyan and still deduct those donations from their 2013 tax bill…” (Kasperowicz, 3/20).
