CCD Letter to House Opposing Tax Reform 2.0
The undersigned organizational members of the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) write to strongly oppose “Tax Reform 2.0” as passed out of the House Committee on Ways and Means. CCD is the largest coalition of national organizations working together to advocate for federal public policy that ensures the self-determination, independence, empowerment, integration and inclusion of children and adults with disabilities in all aspects of society.

CCD Action Alert - Urge Your Representative to Oppose Tax Cuts 2.0
The House is scheduled to vote this Friday, September 28 on the centerpiece of the “Tax Cuts 2.0” package, H.R. 6760. Last year’s tax cuts are already reducing federal revenue that is needed to pay for programs that people with disabilities rely on for their health and wellbeing. We should not make the problem worse in order to mostly benefit high income individuals.

CCD Fiscal Policy Task Force Letter to House Ways and Means Committee Opposing Tax Cuts 2.0
As Co-Chairs of the Fiscal Policy Task Force of the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD), we urge you to oppose the new “Tax Reform 2.0” package that is scheduled to be marked up today in the House Ways and Means Committee. We believe this plan - released only this week - to make permanent many parts of last year’s tax law would be very harmful to people with disabilities.

Fiscal Policy Task Force Co-chairs statement on 2019 House Budget Resolution
Washington DC, June 20, 2018 - The Co-Chairs of the Fiscal Policy Task Force of the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD), a national coalition of more than 100 national disability organizations, strongly oppose House Budget Committee Chairman Steve Womack’s 2019 Budget. Like last year’s House Budget, this one again would have people with disabilities and other low-income Americans bear the brunt of efforts to addressing our Nation’s fiscal challenges.

2018 - CCD Fiscal Task Force Letter to House re Balanced Budget Amendment
As Co-Chairs of the Fiscal Policy Task Force of the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD), we write to urge you to oppose on H.J. Res. 2 which proposes a balanced budget amendment (BBA) to the Constitution of the United States. We believe a BBA would be very harmful to people with disabilities and other vulnerable populations.

2018 Fiscal Policy Task Force Co-chairs statement on Omnibus
Washington DC, March 28, 2018 - The Co-Chairs of the Fiscal Policy Task Force of the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD), a national coalition of more than 100 national disability organizations, applauds and thanks Congress for passing essential legislation that funds the federal government through the remainder of the fiscal year. This bi-partisan compromise helps to restore years of lost funding for many disability programs that support the nation’s 59 million Americans who live with a disability.

Washington DC, February 13, 2018 - The Co-Chairs of the Fiscal Policy Task Force of the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD), a national coalition of more than 100 national disability organizations, is once again deeply troubled by the vision that the Administration has laid out for Americans with disabilities. “An American Budget” deeply cuts programs that support the health and wellbeing of people with disabilities.
