Englewood, NJ –U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-09), New Jersey’s only member of the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee, was joined by Bergen County parents at the Bergen Family Center in Englewood to announce legislation he introduced to make child care more affordable for working class families. The bill, H.R. 964, Working Parent Support Act of 2015, would create a Child Care Tax Deduction more valuable to middle income families.

“The exorbitant cost of child care in New Jersey is becoming an increased financial burden on families, particularly in Bergen County,” said Rep. Pascrell.  “The fact is that our current Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit is woefully inadequate to meet the needs of middle class families.

Assembly Approves Eustace 3-Bill Package Taking an Innovative Approach to Combating Hunger

Measures Seek to Put the Billions in Food that Go to Waste Each Year to Good Use

(TRENTON) – The full Assembly on Monday unanimously approved a three-bill package sponsored by Assemblyman Tim Eustace to combat hunger by making good use of the billions of dollars in food that goes to waste every year in the United States.

           The sponsor noted that each year, approximately 40 percent of the food supply in the U.S. goes uneaten due to losses at the farm, retail, and consumer levels.  This wasted food costs Americans $165 billion in retail sales and uses up valuable water and energy resources.  Meanwhile, 49 million Americans, including 16 million children, are at risk of going hungry.  In New Jersey, alone, 1.15 million people, including 375,000 children, are affected by food insecurity.
