May 04, 2018

Washington, D.C. – Today, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) released the following statement in response to the Labor Department’s April 2018 jobs report:

“With the lowest unemployment rate since 2000, this report shows an expanding economy – which was our goal when Republicans passed pro-growth tax reform. Jobs gains for the year are at solid levels and our businesses are expanding here at home. There is more we can do to keep this economy moving in the right direction, and we are excited to do it.” 

Note: The U.S. Department of Labor reported today that the economy added 164,000 jobs in April and the unemployment rate was 3.9 percent.
