CONFEREES/McConnell Announces Senate’s Republican Members of the Tax Reform Conference Committee

The next step in this process is to join our House colleagues in a conference committee to finish our work on this important issue. I know everyone is ready to finalize our tax reform legislation and send it to the president so he can sign it into law.’

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made the following statement after eight Republican Senators were selected for the Tax Cut and Jobs Act conference committee:

Last week, Senators answered the calls of our constituents by voting to overhaul our complex and outdated federal tax code. We seized the opportunity to spur economic growth, to help create jobs right here at home, and to take more money out of Washington’s pocket and put more money into the pockets of hardworking American families. Now that the Senate has voted to join our House colleagues in a conference committee, I’m confident that this distinguished group of Senators will work to get the job done for the American people. I know everyone is ready to finalize our tax reform legislation and send it to the president so he can sign it into law.”
