Clinton Advocates Earned Income Tax Credit in Little Rock Appearance

LITTLE ROCK (AP) _ Former President Bill Clinton visited a tax

assistance session in a working-class Little Rock neighborhood

today to encourage people to take advantage of the earned income

tax credit.

The tax help was being offered in the chapel meeting hall of

Promiseland Church Ministries in southwest Little Rock. Clinton

says he showed up at the afternoon session because he believes it

is important to get the word out on the tax credit available to

working people.

Clinton says the credit is the only tax cut on the books that is

for working people.

Clinton said that last year, 55-thousand families in Arkansas

who were eligible didn't apply for the credit.
