The League of Women Voters -HK was invited to help register voters at the AWA's annual Welcome Back Breakfast. Beth Hall and Kym Kettler-Paddock talked to around 20-25 people, all of whom were interested in learning how to vote from overseas.
We also had the privilege of meeting Mr. Eric Lu, our honorary President, and Ms. Genevieve Siebengartner from the US Consulate General.
Thank you to the AWA for their invitation!
During our Welcome Back Lunch, Kym Kettler-Paddock gave an update on the state of the bipartisan efforts to replace citizenship-based taxation with a form of residence based taxation or territorial taxation.
Representative George Holding (R- NC) introduced Bill H.R. 7358 at the end of the last congressional session. This bill must be re-introduced in order for it to be considered by the House. Representative Don Beyer (D- VA) has been named as a potential co-sponsor of the bill. He is apparently considering the bill and will suggest modifications.
