Lungren bill repeals health reform’s tax requirement

The U.S. Senate approved a bill Tuesday by Rep. Dan Lungren, R-Gold River, that will repeal an unpopular tax reporting requirement that was part of last year’s health care reform legislation.

Lungren’s bill repealing the tax reporting provision had already won approval in the House of Representatives. It now goes to President Barack Obama, who has said he supports repealing the provision and is expected to sign Lungren’s bill.
