Rep. Ryan pushes tax-credit extension

WARREN — U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan is

among a bipartisan group of lawmakers

urging a five-year extension of the

Health Coverage Tax Credit, which helps

retirees access affordable health care.

Ryan, D-Howland, joined the group

Monday in calling on the chairman

and ranking member of the

House Ways and Means

Committee to move on the

extension, something Ryan

has been urging for years,

according to his office.

The credit, which can

cover up to 72.5 percent of

premiums in some cases, is

set to expire Dec. 31.
