House Members Create Bipartisan CPA Caucus

Posted on February 11, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

We’re keep a close eye on Connecticut’s fiscal crisis because, let’s face it, that’s where we live and the local decisions are what immediately and drastically affect our homes, families, and businesses.

But the federal situation isn’t much different at this point, and we certainly have to keep an eye on that, as well.

Good news on the federal side, though! Some wise members of the House – who just happen to be CPAs – have taken a page out of our playbook and formed the Bipartisan Congressional CPA Caucus, to harness their “unique professional skills to develop innovative policy approaches to issues that affect CPAs, including tax administration and compliance, and accounting and auditing standards.”

The group of eight CPAs in the House, led by Caucus creators Reps. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., and Michael Conaway, R-Texas, will also provide input on topics within its realm of expertise, such as budgeting and fiscal issues.

Bravo!
