Wyoming’s Senators Seek Repeal Of Death Tax

June 21, 2013 State of Wyoming No Comments
US Capitol

Wyoming’s US Senators Mike Enzi and John Barrasso joined Senator John Thune of South Dakota and Representative Kevin Brady of Texas, to re-introduce legislation this week to permanently repeal the federal estate tax, better known as the death tax. Enzi and Barrasso said the bill would permanently abolish the tax on family farms, ranches, and businesses. The senators believe a family’s assets, sometimes built up over generations, should be left in the hands of the family and will be put to better use there in the local community than shipped off to a wasteful Washington. Thune and Brady are the main sponsors of the bill. At its introduction in the Senate, the bill had 26 cosponsors in addition to Enzi and Barrasso. Brady has 11 cosponsors so far in the House. The Death Tax Repeal Act of 2013 is nearly identical to legislation introduced in the 112th Congress that garnered the bipartisan support of 223 Representatives and 38 Senators.
