WASHINGTON, DC -- Today, the U.S. House of Representatives approved a historic tax reform bill for the first time in more than three decades. U.S. Rep. Harold "Hal" Rogers (KY-05) applauded passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, H.R. 1, which simplifies the tax code and provides tax cuts across the board.

"As a result of this bill, Kentucky families will begin taking home an average of nearly $2,000 more in their paychecks and small business owners will have more resources than ever before to help them expand and create more jobs here at home," said Rogers, who voted for the legislation. "The House and Senate have worked closely together on this reform bill to ensure the plan eliminates costly loopholes and focuses on helping our middle class and low-income families. I'm proud to help advance sweeping tax reform and join President Trump in keeping this important promise to the people of southern and eastern Kentucky."
