December 6, 2017 | Press Releases

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) issued the following statement after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) appointed him to serve on a House-Senate conference committee to finalize the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act, legislation which will help middle-class families, create more jobs, and increase wages for American workers:

“We’ve made important strides toward providing middle-class tax relief and reforming our tax code, and I will continue to work to improve this bill as the House and Senate complete our work. In 2010, I made a commitment to the people of Ohio that I would help lead an effort to reform our broken tax code and provide relief to families and small businesses, and I intend to keep that commitment. This effort is about giving Ohio families a better future with more jobs and higher wages, and I’m optimistic that the House and Senate will send a final bill to the president’s desk before Christmas.”
