Sen. Thom Tillis

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC) issued the following statement on the Senate Finance Committee and the House Ways and Means Committee’s release of their tax reform framework:

“The initial tax reform framework is a great first step to overhauling our broken and antiquated tax code and allowing the American economy to unleash its full potential. I’m encouraged that the framework follows similar principles that we implemented in North Carolina: simplifying the tax code, lowering rates, and broadening the base. North Carolina’s tax reform has been incredibly successful, leading to more jobs, more revenue, and more growth. This success can be replicated at the national level, and it’s now time for Congress to get to work and fufill our promise to reform the federal tax code.”

Earlier this month, Senator Tillis wrote an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal outlining the success tax reform has had on North Carolina’s economy.
