Toomey: Budget Resolution Provides Tools Needed to Enact Pro-Growth Tax Reform

October 19, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) issued the following statement on the Senate's passage of the Fiscal Year 2018 budget resolution:

"The budget resolution passed tonight by the Senate provides Congress with the tools needed to enact pro-growth tax reform.

"There are two primary goals of tax reform-providing tax relief for middle-income hardworking Americans and creating incentives to maximize economic growth.

"The next step will be for the House and Senate to come together on a common budget resolution quickly so the tax writing committees can begin considering the details of the tax plan. I am confident that we will deliver pro-growth tax reform that will lead to higher wages and a better standard of living for all Americans."
