Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX), Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee and a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released the following statement after the House voted to go to conference on H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

Congressman McCaul: “Today, Congress voted for both chambers to meet to refine the differences between our two tax reform bills. For the first time in 31 years, both the House and Senate each passed reform legislation that will deliver tax relief to the American people and provide them with a simpler, fairer tax code. While folks across the aisle are defending the status quo, the fact remains that republicans in Congress are working to make life better for the hardworking American taxpayers. I commend my colleagues for their leadership and work on this critical issue, and I look forward to working with my colleagues in both the House and Senate to finish the job.”
