WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Chamber of Commerce Senior Vice President and Chief Policy Officer Neil Bradley issued the following statement regarding the tax reform principles released today by Congress and the Trump administration:
“Today’s announcement, and the unity of vision shown in it, bolsters our confidence that tax reform can be enacted this year. The engagement and enthusiasm for pro-growth tax reform from Trump administration officials and Congressional lawmakers is what will propel this over the finish line for American businesses, workers, and families. The U.S. Chamber applauds the work that has been done to narrow the differences and we look forward to continuing to engage policy makers on this critical issue.
“As the Chamber’s president and CEO Tom Donohue made clear in an open letter to Congress last week about tax reform, ‘failure is not an option’ and the Chamber will be holding lawmakers accountable to make sure tax reform gets done for the American people.”
The U.S. Chamber will judge any tax reform package on whether it achieves economic growth; its principles for pro-growth tax reform can be viewed here.
