Chairman Black Appointed to Tax Reform Conference Committee

Washington, D.C. – House Budget Committee Chairman Diane Black issued the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives voted on a motion to go to conference with the Senate in order to deliver tax reform for the first time in more than three decades. Chairman Black has been appointed by Speaker Paul Ryan to serve on the conference committee:

“Following action in the Senate last week, I am encouraged that both chambers of Congress have taken steps to advance tax reform legislation for the American people. While there are still differences that must be worked out in conference, our core mission is the same. As we move into these important conversations, I am confident that we can deliver historic reform that provides much-needed tax relief for hardworking middle-class American families, simplifies our outdated tax code and empowers businesses to create jobs. The American people deserve nothing less.”
