Rep. Tom Graves Votes to Unlock Tax Reform

Washington, October 26, 2017 - Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) today voted for and the House passed the Senate Amendment to H.Con.Res. 71, a Senate-passed federal budget for fiscal year 2018. After the vote, Rep. Graves issued the following statement:

“By passing this budget, the House and Senate unlocked the special legislative process called ‘reconciliation’ that will allow us to pass a major tax reform package for America. Using reconciliation, the Senate can pass President Trump’s tax reform plan with a filibuster-proof, 51-vote majority. This gives Congress its first real chance at passing tax reform in decades. It’s time to get it done. Georgia families deserve to have a simpler, fairer tax code that allows them to keep more of their hard-earned money.”
