MADISON – With the child tax credit set to expire, putting nearly 10 million children at risk of falling back below the poverty line, Wisconsin State Treasurer and candidate for U.S. Senate Sarah Godlewski today called for immediate action from Congress.

“The child tax credit has lifted tens of thousands of Wisconsin children out of poverty.  Amid the holiday season, it is shameful that the House and Senate have gone home, leaving millions of working families hanging,” said State Treasurer Sarah Godlewski. “Our leaders must immediately return to Washington to make the child tax credit permanent before taking time off at the end of the year. Wisconsinites deserve to have peace of mind that these payments will continue in the new year.”

The child tax credit has provided thousands of Wisconsin’s working families much-needed tax relief, lowered household costs, and lifted tens of thousands of Wisconsin children out of poverty.
