WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Ways and Means Tax Policy Subcommittee Chairman Charles Boustany (R-LA) today announced that the Subcommittee will hold a hearing entitled “Perspectives on the Need for Tax Reform” on Wednesday, May 25, at 2:00 PM in room 1100 of the Longworth House Office Building. As House Republicans continue work on crafting a comprehensive, pro-growth tax plan, Members will hear from leading experts about the conditions in the current economic environment that underscore the urgent need for commonsense reforms to create a fairer, simpler, flatter tax code and grow the economy.
Upon announcing the hearing, Chairman Boustany said:
“This Subcommittee is leading the conversation about comprehensive tax reform, and next week’s hearing is another step in advancing our pro-growth ideas. Everybody agrees – now is the time for bold, 21st century solutions that will spur investment, job creation, and wage growth. I look forward to focusing on the need to jump-start our economy to help Americans reach their full potential and how reforming our broken tax code is part of the solution.”
