WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) released the following statement on President Trump’s remarks in Missouri today on Hurricane recovery efforts in Texas and Congress’ work to deliver pro-growth tax reform in 2017.
“First, I’d like to thank the President for taking the time to speak today about his commitment to helping the people in my district and throughout Texas recover from the devastating destruction of Hurricane Harvey. The President and his team have been incredibly supportive during this heart-breaking time and I am so grateful for his strong leadership. In the days, months, and years ahead, the Texas delegation and the Trump Administration will be working hand in hand to help the people of Texas recover stronger than ever.
“I am also encouraged by the President’s excellent remarks on tax reform. He explained clearly today why Washington must act now on pro-growth tax reform that will create jobs, grow paychecks, and improve the lives of all Americans. As the President mentioned, our tax reform plan will make the American Dream more accessible than ever before. The Ways and Means Committee is ready to work with the President and deliver on this important priority this year.”
