WASHINGTON—Congressman Dan Kildee (MI-05), Chief Deputy Whip of the House Democratic Caucus and Member of the House Ways and Means Committee, today applauded the inclusion of legislation he’s championed to eliminate income taxes paid on Pell Grants in President Biden’s Build Back Better budget.
“Jack was a friend, and I am saddened to learn of his passing. Representative Minore embodied Michigan values through his service as a teacher, union leader and elected official. I first met Jack nearly five decades ago when, as a local teacher’s union leader, he interviewed and later endorsed me during my first run for the Flint School Board of Education.
“House Democrats have acted responsibly to avoid a government shutdown, which would be catastrophic for Michigan families, small businesses and our economy as we continue to live through this pandemic. This bill also ensures that we meet the obligations our country has already made, including to Social Security recipients and veterans.
