Chamber Opposes H.R. 1813: Border Wall Funding Act 2017

The Chamber Board of Directors voted unanimously to oppose H.R. 1813, a bill introduced by Representative Mike Rogers (AL) to impose a 2 percent tax on remittance transactions sent from the United States to certain foreign countries.

Double taxation of our workforce, U.S. relationships with affected countries, and an increase in utilization of grey market channels, or illegal methods of money transfers are some of the impacts to our economy.
