The Senate Finance Committee is still scheduled to markup an extenders bill tomorrow, July 21. The Committee has released the amendments which various Senators would like to have included in the bill. Notably, Committee Chairman, Senator Hatch himself has offered an amendment for the permanent extension of the R&D credit which is consistent with legislation already passed by the House.
Senators Portman and Cardin have offered two amendments related to WOTC. First, so expand WOTC by adding a new target group for individuals who are long-term unemployed. They note that this amendment was included in the last extenders bill passed by the Committee last year. Second, they propose making WOTC permanent, which was not a part of the 2014 EXPIRE Act.
