WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. House of Representatives passed the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act today, which would be the first major overhaul of the U.S. tax code since 1986. The bill passed by a 227-205 vote and will deliver tax relief for earners in all income categories according to independent analysis.
Congressman Higgins issued the following statement:
“We’re moving forward with our pro-growth plan to ignite our economy and deliver historic tax relief. This is a big win for working-class Americans. We’re going to witness tremendous economic growth for businesses of all sizes, creating new jobs and opportunity that will benefit all American workers and families. The Senate must act quickly on tax reform legislation so that we can go to Conference, hammer out the details through respectful debate, and send a bill to President Trump’s desk before the end of the year.”
