Tampa BayTwo national business organizations had differing views on the latest bill to make it through the U.S. House of Representatives.

TechAmerica, which represents approximately 1,500 member companies of the U.S. technology industry, applauded House Resolution 4213 — more commonly known as The Tax Extenders Act of 2009 — because it extends the current research and development tax credit for another year.

“The R&D credit is an investment in high-paying jobs for hardworking Americans,” said TechAmerica president Phil Bond in a release. “With similar action in the Senate, companies can proceed with assurance that the credit will be there one more year.”
