On January 31, 2024, the House of Representatives passed the Tax Relief for American Families and Workers Act, the bipartisan tax package that includes an expansion of the Child Tax Credit (CTC), in an overwhelmingly bipartisan 357-70 vote. The bill, which would help about 16 million children in families with low incomes in the first year, has drawn criticism from conservatives, moderates, and progressives alike. It still faces an uphill battle in the Senate, where key Senate Republicans, including Senate Finance Ranking Member Crapo (R-ID), have identified issues with the CTC provisions and have indicated that they would like to make amendments to the final package. There is a limited amount of time for Congress to pass the bill in order for it to go in effect this year.
