Washington, DC - Representative Dave Reichert (R-WA) released this statement following the release of the Conference Committee's Report on H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

“With today’s release of the final tax bill, we are moving closer to reforming our tax code for the benefit of the American people," said Rep. Reichert. "As I review this bill, I will continue to hold it to the standards I have considered throughout this process. The final result must create jobs in America, increase paychecks, and put more money in the pockets of hard working Americans. While we have made important improvements to the tax provisions of the bill for American families along the way, I am deeply disappointed the Conference Committee rejected my request to remove language that opens the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to drilling.”
