Sen. Olympia Snowe Co-sponsors Hearing Aid Tax Credit

Sen. Olympia Snowe (R-ME) has co-sponsored the Hearing Aid Tax Credit (S. 1019), and will co-sign a "Dear Colleague" letter with Senator Harkin (D-IA) urging support from other Senators. As an influential member of the Senate Finance Committee which reviews all tax legislation, Sen. Snowe's co-sponsorship and active support of the bill is significant. A co-sponsor in the previous Congress, Senator Snowe had declined to take a leading role on the tax credit while the Minnesota election outcome was still undetermined. Norm Coleman (R-MN) was the original Republican champion of the Senate bill.
