Sam Johnson Statement on Tax Reform Bill
WASHINGTON, D.C. – In response to the tax reform bill released today by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (TX-08), U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03), a senior Committee Member, made the following statement:
America’s complicated and broken tax code is hurting our economy and, in turn, American families. That’s why I’ve long said we need a simpler tax code that rewards hard work. I’m encouraged to see that the bill introduced today would provide tax relief for working families and the middle class as well as much-needed pro-growth business reforms. I’m also encouraged to see some of my commonsense bills included in the legislation. I look forward to taking the next step toward tax reform, and I will continue to do everything I can to make this bill the best it can be. Reforming America’s complicated and broken tax code is too important to not get right.
