Congressman Bill Johnson released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives approved the conference committee report for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act:

This is an historic week for the American people. For the first time in over 30 years, real tax relief and reform will be delivered. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will reduce taxes at every income level, double the standard deduction and child tax credit, and empower businesses to grow and hire more people.  Important deductions for home mortgage interest, student loan interest, and charitable donations remain. Most importantly, the middle class – hardworking Americans that are too-often left behind – will see tremendous tax relief. This legislation delivers higher wages, lower taxes, bigger take-home paychecks, a simpler and fairer system, and a stronger economy across the board.

Once approved by the Senate, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will be signed into law by President Trump, empowering individuals, families, and businesses to invest and succeed in the American Dream.
