On Monday, November 29, the Senate will vote on Senator Mike Johanns’ (R-NE) proposal to repeal the new Form 1099 filing requirements. The fully funded proposal will be considered as an amendment to the Food Safety Modernization Act, S. 510. Senator Max Baucus (D-MT) has proposed a Form 1099 repeal that is virtually identical to Senator Johanns’ proposal but lacks an offset to maintain budget neutrality. Senator Johanns’ amendment directs the Office of Management and Budget to identify $39 billion in unspent and unobligated accounts to replace the revenue that might have been generated by the 1099 paperwork mandate.
Your Action is Needed: Contact your Senators and urge them to support the Johanns Amendment when it comes up for a vote on Monday, November 29. Go to www.senate.gov or www.house.gov to find your Members of Congress and their websites. TELEPHONE 202-224-3121.
