WASHINGTON, D.C. – Last night, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady was appointed to lead the conference committee to finalize the details of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Congressman Brady released the following statement:
“Republicans in the House have been working toward this historic moment for years. Now it’s our time to come together with the Senate to deliver on our tax reform promise for the American people. Both chambers have put our best ideas forward – and now we will build off our ideas in a conference committee. I am honored to chair this committee and look forward to working with my House and Senate colleagues and the White House to strengthen our ideas and ensure our bill improves the lives of all Americans.
“In the weeks ahead, we will send a bill to the President for the first time in 31 years that cuts taxes for families and job creators and ushers in a new era of economic growth. We are committed to delivering by the end of the year bold tax reform that creates more jobs, bigger paychecks, and fairer taxes.”
