Bills Introduced in Congress to Make the Adoption Tax Credit Refundable

Just before Memorial Day weekend, bills to make the adoption tax credit refundable were introduced in the Senate and the House.
In the Senate, the Adoption Tax Refundability Act (S. 1056) was introduced by Senator Casey (D-PA), Senator Landrieu (D-LA), and Senator Blunt (R-MO). The House bill, H.R. 2144, was introduced by Representative Braley (D-IA).
