Tax Reform Moves Closer to President’s Desk

 

WASHINGTON – The Financial Services Roundtable (FSR) today commended the U.S. Senate for passing its tax reform bill and called on policymakers to work together in a conference committee to resolve final issues and bring this process to a successful close.

“The status quo has failed to deliver for too many hardworking Americans. Today’s action in the Senate means meaningful tax reform that boosts wages and expands economic opportunity is one step closer to reality,” said FSR CEO Tim Pawlenty.

FSR is committed to achieving an outcome that will drive more jobs and more investment that benefits American families and businesses.

This week, FSR’s Pawlenty outlined the importance of business and individual tax reform at a POLITICO Playbook Interview event. A recent FSR/Morning Consult poll showed three in four voters (73%) say passing a tax reform bill should be a top or important priority for Congress and nearly nine in ten (87%) say it’s important to simplify the U.S. tax system. View more poll highlights here.
