The U.S. Congress is likely to vote again on whether to eliminate the estate tax permanently, a top priority for many construction organizations. A House vote on the bill is expected in the week ending June 16, 2003. The House no longer is expected to link estate tax repeal with expanding the child tax credit to low-income families. Instead, it will take up a separate estate tax repeal bill. In 2001, Congress voted to eliminate the tax by 2010, but it will return in 2011.
