Last Day before August Recess: Tax Return Savings & Novelty Lighters: July 31, 2008

August recess will begin tonight unless some drastic events happen this afternoon. The House did not have any bills of note introduced, but there were a few in the Senate.

This first one would provide a government matching funds as incentive to put tax returns in savings account.

S. 3372. A bill to promote savings by providing a match for eligible taxpayers who contribute to savings products and to facilitate taxpayers receiving this match and open a bank account when they file their Federal income tax returns; to the Committee on Finance. Source: GPO [S7903]

This next bill is sort of an odd one and makes me wonder what happened to create need for bill of this sort:

By Mr. WYDEN (D-OR) (for himself, Ms. COLLINS (R-ME) and Mr. DODD (D-CT)):
S. 3375. A bill to prohibit the introduction or delivery for introduction into interstate commerce of novelty lighters, and for other purposes; to the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. Source: GPO [S7903]
