WASHINGTON – Congressman Blake Farenthold (R-Texas) issued the following statement Tuesday after the Conference Report to Accompany H.R. 1 – Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed the House.
“Today, I fulfilled one of my long-term goals serving in Congress; voting for a fairer, flatter and simpler tax code that cuts taxes for hardworking Americans,” said Congressman Farenthold. “This pro-growth, pro-family legislation will help you keep more of your paycheck. It also helps low and middle-income Americans by nearly doubling the standard deduction, lowering the individual tax rates and increasing the child tax credit. I’m looking forward to this legislation passing the Senate tonight and President Trump signing it into law.”
The Conference Report to Accompany H.R. 1 – Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed the House 227-203.
