Sen. Burr Statement on Finance Committee Approval of Tax Cuts and Jobs Act: Historic Opportunity

WASHINGTON – Yesterday, the Senate Finance Committee approved the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, a historic bill to overhaul the nation’s tax code. Senator Richard Burr (R-NC), as a senior member of the Committee, made the following statement: 

“Americans need a break. Our sluggish economy over the last fifteen years has meant that their paychecks aren’t increasing as fast as they should be, and too many jobs have left their communities to set up shop in other countries where their tax code is less complicated. This scenario very much applies to North Carolina, where jobs have left our state and large portions of the state’s economy have stagnated as a result. This bill is a great opportunity for our state and country. Let’s put more money back into the pockets of Americans.”
