Re: House Dems Could Have Trumps Taxes Decline

Just speaking as a legal layperson but I believe that NY has to be careful with the new law so as to NOT appear to be done just to get Trump's tax return.

 

Any legislative body has to be careful in the laws which they pass because laws cannot be designed for just one person or even a group of people.

It is a slippery slope.

 

You know that it will be challenged so not giving fuel for being overridden is of paramount concern to NY legislators as well as the Congress.

Congressional Dems Don’t Seem Eager For Trump’s New York Tax Returns

 

New York has a new law giving congressional tax committees access to state tax returns. They have to want it, though.

 

Congressional Democrats could get some of President Donald Trump’s personal tax information thanks to a new law signed Monday by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) ― but they don’t seem terribly interested. 

 

House Democrats have sued the Trump administration over its refusal to hand over copies of the president’s federal returns. But they have expressed little enthusiasm for getting his New York returns, even though they could obtain some of the same information they’re looking for. 

 

State Sen. Brad Hoylman (D), who authored the New York bill, told HuffPost he received no input from congressional Democrats while drafting the bill and hasn’t heard from anyone on Capitol Hill about getting the documents. 

 

“I can understand why they would want to test the federal waters first,” Hoylman said. “But if they don’t want to wait for the court challenge and the appeals process to complete itself, they could take advantage of this route New York has provided them today.”

 

Spokespeople for House Ways and Means Committee chair Richard Neal (D-Mass.) ― who has led the Democratic quest for Trump’s federal tax info ― did not respond to HuffPost’s requests for comment on Monday.
