Ivanka Trump has praised Senator Bill Cassidy's new bill that provides parents with more resources to raise their new child.

The Advancing Support for Working Families Act would allow families the option to advance up to $5,000 of their recently-doubled child tax credit in the first year of a child’s life or the first year a family adopts a child. Families can also choose to advance their child credit without having to miss work or sacrifice a state or employer’s family/medical leave policy to pay for other expenses.

“The first year of a child’s life is the most expensive. This bill achieves our goal of helping working families better provide for their child in the way that best works for their family,” said Dr. Cassidy.

Ivanka Trump released the following statement:

“The only pathway to making paid family leave a reality for hardworking American parents is through bipartisan, bicameral legislation. The White House applauds Senator Cassidy, Senator Sinema, Congressman Allred and Congresswoman Stefanik for introducing legislation that will support parents in the critical first year following the birth or adoption of a child.”
