Tell Congress to Pass Commuter Benefit Parity in 2015!
Once again, in 2014 the Transit Benefit was increased and decreased in the same year. Although, the Transit Benefit was retroactively increased for 2014, only, and even then in limited circumstances, it returned to the decreased level of $130/month for 2015.
H.R. 990, the Commuter Benefit Parity Act of 2015 offers the opportunity for Congress to take action now to raise the current pre-tax monthly level of the transit portion of the Commuter Benefit to equal the level that is permitted for parking.
With Congress back to work, it is critical that you contact your Representative asking for passage of H.R. 990. At the same time ask your Senators to request introduction of similar legislation in the Senate. Ask them to sign up as co-sponsors of bills that are introduced. Securing the support of additional members of Congress is vital for passage of the legislation in this new session of Congress and cannot be done without your help.
Tell your Members of Congress that now is the time for action. Enter your zip code below and write to your Representative and Senators to tell them that they should take action to support transit benefit parity.
We appreciate your support. A letter from you will make a difference (even if you have already sent one). 2015 brings an entirely new session of Congress, complete with new representatives and new opportunities.
