A New York Democrat said he won’t back any tax increases that President Joe Biden proposes to pay for infrastructure legislation unless there is also a repeal of the $10,000 cap on state and local tax deductions.

“No SALT, no deal,” Representative Tom Suozzi said in a statement Monday. “I am not going to support any change in the tax code unless there is a restoration of the SALT deduction.”
