CWA in The Washington Times!
The Washington Times published an opinion/editorial by Concerned Women for America (CWA) Chief Executive Officer Penny Young Nance on Monday, January 25, 2010. Click here to read it.

In her editorial, Nance refers to legislation that could, if passed, extend federal tax incentives for adoption. This important measure would help adoptive parents better handle the costs of adopting. In the Senate, the bill is S. 2816 by Senator Jim Bunning (R-Kentucky) and in the House, H.R. 213 by Rep. Joe Wilson (R-South Carolina). The bill would extend tax credits of up to $10,000 for parents who adopt. Congress passed the tax credits in 2001; they will expire unless Congress extends them.
