WASHINGTON –  Congressman Blake Farenthold (R-Texas) issued the following statement Thursday after the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed the House.

“This pro-growth, pro-family legislation will help you keep more of your paycheck,” said Congressman Farenthold. “This bill helps low and middle-income Americans by nearly doubling the standard deduction, lowering the individual tax rates and increasing the child tax credit. It also simplifies the way we do our taxes. I’m looking forward to President Trump signing this bill into law by the end of the year.”

H.R. 1 passed the House 227-205.
