Reichert, House Vote To Go To Conference On Tax Bill

Dec 4, 2017 Issues: Economy and Jobs, Tax Policy

Washington, DC – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to send H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, to conference with the Senate, following Senate passage of their version of tax reform late last week. During this time representatives from both chambers will have the opportunity to resolve the differences between the two plans.

“Now that the Senate has passed their version of the tax plan, I am pleased we are moving forward to reform our tax code to ensure it works for the American people," Rep. Reichert said. It is my hope that there will be a robust conference discussion and in working through the differences between the two plans, improvements will be made. This includes protecting the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from drilling. The plan must also create jobs in America, increase paychecks, and put more money in the pockets of hard working Americans. I remain committed to a final plan that allows Washingtonians and Americans across the country to keep more of their hard earned money and gets our economy booming again.”
