Scott, Senate Colleagues Fight to Provide Expectant Moms with Tax Relief

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.) joined his Senate colleagues in introducing the Child Tax Credit for Pregnant Moms Act, legislation which will allow expectant moms to claim the Child Tax Credit for their unborn children. The Child Tax Credit for Pregnant Moms Act builds on the Child Tax Credit provisions included in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act by supporting families and pregnant mothers in light of the many costs that come with carrying a baby, as well as planning for the care of a newborn baby.

“Expectant moms deserve nothing less than our utmost support as they navigate this joyful yet challenging time,” said Senator Scott.“That’s why, I’ll always fight to make life easier for moms, empowering them with the resources they need to thrive, especially in Biden’s failing economy.”

Senator Scott was joined by Senators Steve Daines (R-Mont.), Ted Budd (R-N.C.), Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.), Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.), James Lankford (R-Okla.), Mike Lee (R-Utah), and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).
