NTU Joins Conservative Coalition in Support of Senate Tax Bill

The Honorable Orrin G. Hatch
Chairman, Senate Committee on Finance
219 Dirksen Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20510

Dear Chairman Hatch and Members of the Senate Finance Committee:

We write in support of the Chairman’s Mark of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The release of this legislation marks an important step in passing comprehensive tax reform before the end of the year. We urge your committee to swiftly approve this bill and send it to the full Senate for consideration.

Just like the House bill, your proposal is pro-growth and pro-family. This legislation simplifies the code, reduces taxes for families and businesses, and grows the economy, leading to higher wages and new or better jobs.

Importantly, more work needs to be done, such as ensuring full repeal of the death tax. As you move through the committee process this week, it is imperative that this unfair tax is repealed.

Congress has a rare opportunity this year to reform the broken federal tax code. We stand ready to work with you as the Senate Finance Committee continues moving through regular order starting with mark-up of the legislation this week.

Sincerely,

Grover Norquist
