Newly Sponsored Legislation

Senator Rubio is an original co-sponsor of S.3420, a bill to make the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts permanent. Making these tax cuts permanent is an important step toward getting our economy back on the right track. If President Obama gets his way, our government will raise taxes on millions of Americans, including many small business owners who are key job creators. A recent study showed that allowing any of the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts to expire would cause economic growth to slow and more jobs around our country to be lost.

Senator Rubio is a co-sponsor of S.3290, the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act of 2012, a bill designed to stop discrimination against the unborn on the basis of sex or gender. A sex-selective abortion is an abortion undertaken because of an unborn child’s gender, an especially barbaric practice that has been described by scholars and civil rights advocates as an act of gender-based violence. Senator Rubio will continue to be a voice for life, not only trying to win hearts and minds on the issue, but also by supporting pro-life policies.
