Open Letter to Rob Portman on Federal Tax Reform

20 December 2017

Dear Senator Portman:

Thank you for your tireless efforts in fighting for—and retaining—the Historic Tax Credit, New Markets Tax Credit and Private Activity Bonds in H.R.1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

As Ohio’s champion for sustainable redevelopment, we at the Greater Ohio Policy Center know that these programs are essential for our communities as they transition into the 21st century, digital economy. We are thrilled that these programs will continue to support Ohio in capitalizing on its legacy of beautiful cities and villages, committed workforce, and motivated leaders.

We are grateful for your leadership in protecting these critical economic and community development tools.
