A new bill recently passed in Alabama would allow residents to opt into donating some of their state-level tax refunds to the construction of President Trump’s proposed barrier at the US-Mexico border.
Rep. Del Marsh, who introduced the bill, said “People I talk to across Alabama are sick and tired of politicians in Washington DC talking and nothing being done about the crisis on our borders.”
“This bill is about sending a message to Washington, that we support President Trump and his mission to secure our southern border,” said Marsh.
Marsh added, “This bill simply allows citizens, if they choose, to send a message that they want to see our borders secured by sending a portion of their tax refund to donate to build the wall.”
The bill, which passed on the 21st of March in a 23-7 vote, now heads to Alabama’s House.
From The Epoch Times:
Alabama residents are one step closer to being allowed to donate some of their state tax refunds toward the construction of the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
A bill introduced by Rep. Del Marsh (R-Anniston) passed in the Alabama Senate by a vote of 23-7 on March 21, and has headed to the state’s House of Representatives.
“I thank the Senate for their support on this matter and I look forward to working with the House to give Alabamians a voice and are able to express their desire to support President Trump and stronger border security,” March said in a statement, reported the Yellow Hammer.
The bill (pdf) allows taxpayers to voluntarily give a part of their refund to We Build the Wall, Inc., a nonprofit that aims to raise money for the construction of the wall. People are already able to donate a portion of their refund to areas like the Children’s Trust Fund, Alabama Breast and Cervical Cancer Research Program, and Foster Care Trust Fund.
Senate Democrats attempted to block the bill by organizing a filibuster that started on March 20. When they tried to delay the bill again the next day, Republicans successfully adopted a cloture petition to end the filibuster, reported the news website.
Marsh said, “People I talk to across Alabama are sick and tired of politicians in Washington D.C. talking and nothing being done about the crisis on our borders. This bill is about sending a message to Washington that we support President Trump and his mission to secure our southern border.”
“This bill simply allows citizens, if they choose, to send a message that they want to see our borders secured by sending a portion of their tax refund to donate to build the wall,” he added.
