Bennet and Harris Worked Together to Expand the Child Tax Credit During Her Time in the Senate

Washington, D.C. — Today, Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet released the following statement welcoming Vice President Kamala Harris to Colorado:

“I am grateful that Vice President Harris has come to our state to promote the American Rescue Plan. The plan is a critical and historic step in our fight against this pandemic and toward creating an economy that provides opportunity for everyone. The direct relief and enhanced tax credits represent the biggest investment in families and workers in generations.

“Vice President Harris and I worked side by side to expand the Child Tax Credit and cut child poverty when she was in the Senate. The Child Tax Credit will be the difference for millions of families across Colorado between poverty and opportunity, and create a measure of economic security. I want to thank Vice President Harris for including the tax credit in the American Rescue Plan, and look forward to working with her to make it permanent.”
