Burr on Senate Budget Vote: It’s Time to Simplify the Tax Code

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Richard Burr released the following statement regarding the Senate’s passage of the FY 2018 Budget Resolution, to begin the tax reform process:

“I’m very pleased to take the first steps in the Senate towards reforming our country’s broken tax code. It’s been far too long since there has been a serious overhaul of our tax system, and the time to act is now. As a member of the Senate Finance Committee, we are on our way to starting the legislative process to simplify the code, encourage companies to bring money back home from overseas, and put hard-earned dollars back in the pockets of millions of North Carolinians and Americans who need it most.”
