Brady, Roskam Announce Full Committee Hearing on How Tax Reform Will Grow Our Economy and Create Jobs Across America

May 11, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX), accompanied by Tax Policy Subcommittee Chairman Peter Roskam (R-IL), announced today that the Ways and Means Committee will hold a hearing on how tax reform will grow our economy and create jobs across America. The hearing will take place on Thursday, May 18, in 1100 Longworth House Office Building at 10:00 AM. The hearing will focus on tax reform policies that will generate economic growth, create jobs, and increase paychecks for all Americans.

Upon announcing the hearing, Chairman Brady said:

“Ways and Means Republicans are focused on pro-growth, comprehensive tax reform because it will create jobs, increase paychecks, and grow our economy. We’ll hear from witnesses about specific policy proposals that deliver the most economic growth and how our ideas will directly help hardworking taxpayers and the businesses that create jobs across America. Our hearing is an important step forward as we work with President Trump and our Senate colleagues on delivering historic pro-growth tax reform for the first time in 30 years.”

Chairman Roskam added:

“Our tax code is broken. It stifles economic growth, puts American businesses at a major disadvantage, and hurts American families. I’m looking forward to discussing how comprehensive, permanent tax reform can grow the economy and help create jobs here in the United States.”
