Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21), member of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, issued the following statement in response to the news that the White House had reversed its decision to propose new taxes on 529 college savings plans:
“I am happy President Obama has changed his mind regarding his proposal to tax college savings plans. These 529 plans are an important tool to help middle-class families save to attend college, and it would be misguided to begin discouraging this with new taxes. As a member of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, I look forward to pursuing policies that will help expand access to higher education and lower the cost so that hardworking North Country families and students can pursue their dreams.”
