Patent progress

Tax Notes ($) reports that the House Judiciary Committee has green-lit H.R. 1249, the America Invents Act.  The bill would finally eliminate patents on tax strategies.  I don't know why this has taken so long, the vote was 32 - 3, and the bill now goes to the full House.  The Senate passed S. 23, also called the America Invents Act, in March.

It shouldn't be this hard to enact good policy.
