Congressman Sponsors Bill to Aid Troops, Families

Lawmakers are trying to take care of the military and their families left behind. Georgia Third District Congressmen Jim Marshall is cosponsoring a bill that will bring tax cuts to active duty military personnel.

"It covers travel expenses, death gratuities, capital gains and taxes when you sell principal residence," he said. "It's basically designed to help all of those who are serving our military now by cutting taxes."
