(AP) — Seven Democratic governors are calling on President Joe Biden to lift the $10,000 cap on state and local tax deductions that was a part of former President Donald Trump’s massive 2017 tax law.
In a letter sent the Democratic president Friday, they argued that Democratic-run states and their taxpayers were disproportionately targeted.

The letter comes a little more than a week after U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen agreed to work with Congress on a way to remedy the “inequities” the cap has caused.
The governors of Connecticut, New Jersey, California, Hawaii, Illinois, New York and Oregon sent the letter.
