WASHINGTON, DC –Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), the daughter and sister of veterans, yesterday voted to pass the bipartisan SECURE Act, which includes the Gold Star Family Tax Relief Act to fix a consequence of the GOP Tax Law that is causing Gold Star families to see drastic tax increases.

“Our Gold Star Families have sacrificed more than we can ever imagine protecting our country and our freedoms. It is now our duty to be there for them. As I cast my vote yesterday for the SECURE Act, I could not help but feel how fitting it was that we make sure these families get the tax relief they need as we head into Memorial Day when we honor all our fallen soldiers. We can never repay the debt we owe them, but this vote was an important way to tell Gold Star Families that we will be here for you.
