REP. JENKINS: HOUSE PASSES LANDMARK TAX REFORM BILL
WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Evan Jenkins (R-W.Va.) issued the following statement today after the U.S. House of Representatives passed the conference report for the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act:
“This bill is a result of working closely with President Trump to craft job-creating tax reform that works for West Virginia’s families and small businesses. The Tax Cuts & Jobs Act means that our middle-class families will keep more of their money. A single parent of two children who earns $52,000 will get to keep nearly $1,900 more of their hard-earned money, thanks to this bill. We will also help our state’s economy continue to grow by encouraging companies to invest in America and create jobs here at home. I’m looking forward to seeing this bill on the president’s desk before Christmas so we can deliver tax cuts in the new year,” Rep. Jenkins said.
The report is the House-Senate agreement on the bill. The report now heads to the U.S. Senate for a vote.
