OP-ED:

IT'S TIME

FOR A UBI

PILOT FOR

OUR TROOPS

FEDERAL LEGISLATION

In addition to emergency relief payments for COVID-19, we are supporting two pieces of federal legislation, the BOOST Act and the American Family Act.  Together, these bills lay the foundation for a national UBI in the United States.

THE BOOST ACT

Representative Rashida Tlaib has introduced the BOOST Act.  This bill would provide a $3,000 ($250 per month) fully refundable tax credit to every American adult.  LEARN MORE

THE AMERICAN FAMILY ACT

Senators Michael Bennet & Sherrod Brown & Representatives Rosa DeLauro & Suzan DelBene have introduced the American Family Act.  These bills would provide a $3,000 ($250 per month) fully refundable tax credit per child. $3,600 ($300 per month) for children under 6.  LEARN MORE

STATE ADVOCACY

Some of the best ideas start at the state level.  And it is often easier to pass laws in state capitols years before Congress is ready.  Therefore, we intend to actively develop a state-level strategy in addition to our federal strategy. 

A Universal Basic Benefit for kids, in the form of enhanced Child Tax Credits is already receiving some discussion at the state level as lawmakers, children's advocates, & poverty activists look at ways to fix the shortcomings in the current federal Child Tax Credit.  UBI for adults is a conversation that is just beginning in state legislatures.  However, there are a number of forward-looking lawmakers who are already examining it and considering legislation.
