DES MOINES – Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds commended the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act by Republicans in Congress.
“Congress took an historic step today with the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. In the more than three decades since the tax code was overhauled in 1986, the global economy has become faster-paced and more interconnected, pitting Iowa’s workforce and job creators against international competition,” Reynolds said in a statement Wednesday.
“Iowans deserve a fairer, simpler, more competitive tax code, and I commend Congress, particularly members of the Iowa delegation, and the administration for working tirelessly to get that done.”
Iowa Senators Charles Grassley and Joni Ernst also were ecstatic after the bill passed, and issued statements.
The White House dubbed the landmark tax bill a $3.2 trillion tax cut for American families, including doubling the standard deduction and doubling the child tax credit.
