Washington, D.C. –Congressman Tom Emmer (MN-06) announced today the launch of a new constituent response video series.

“I want my work in Congress to be transparent and accountable, but most importantly—accessible,” said Emmer. “These videos will be an opportunity for me to respond directly to constituent questions, share a behind-the-scenes look at our offices, and give my perspective on what’s happening in Washington.”

In his first update, Emmer discusses the House vote on extending Sec 179 of the tax code, which reduces taxes for businesses by enabling them to write off some equipment purchases, such as certain types of machinery and off-the-shelf software.

Constituents are encouraged to write in and share what issues matter most to them. New videos will appear on his social media accounts and on his website at Emmer.house.gov/AskTom.
