House spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi said Thursday she hoped Democrats can relax the current cap on state and local tax deductions as part of a larger infrastructure package.
Several New York and New Jersey House Democrats say they would not support other tax changes unless the state and local tax cap were lifted. Republicans put a limit of $ 10,000 on state and local deductions in their 2017 Tax Act, H.R. 1 (115). This has harmed those states and Pelosi’s home base in California in particular.
“I agree with your position,” Pelosi said during a briefing with reporters and later added, “Hopefully we can add it to the bill.”
