Who's Who and What's What
1. On Jan. 1, Assemblyman Jerry Hill's in California to revoke a license for 10 years for drivers convicted of three or more DUIs. Until now, these repeat offenders have been able to get their licenses back and continue driving because state law only allowed for a maximum license revocation of three years.
2. The Federal Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) is the nation's largest resource for low-income working families. Contact Hill's office for further details.
3. The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program (VITA) offers free tax help to low- to moderate-income families—generally, those making $49,000 and below. Certified volunteers help prepare basic tax returns. To locate the nearest VITA site, visit the Internal Revenue Service's website or call 1-800-829-1040.
