'Americans deserve a fairer and simpler tax code'

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, the House of Representatives approved the first major tax reform bill since 1986. In response to the historic tax overhaul, U.S. Representative Will Hurd (TX-23) released the following statement:

“For too long, small businesses have struggled and families have lived paycheck to paycheck. Today, we are providing much-needed relief and keeping more money in the pockets of hardworking Americans. In addition to doubling the standard deduction – which 80 percent of my constituents rely on – the simplified plan will provide a huge boost to the economy by empowering businesses to hire, invest and spend more right here at home. Americans deserve a fairer and simpler tax code for a new era of American prosperity. I will continue to support policies that champion economic growth and provide families in my district with financial relief.”
