Chairman Diane Black Praises Passage of Tax Reform in House

Washington, D.C. – House Budget Committee Chairman Diane Black issued the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives approved H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act:

“I am proud the House has acted on modernizing the federal government’s outdated and complicated tax system. By passing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, we are one step closer to delivering much-needed tax relief for hardworking American families, empowering businesses to create more jobs and simplifying the tax code. I look forward to similar action in the Senate, so we can ultimately get legislation to the president’s desk as soon as possible.”
