Washington, D.C. – Today, the House of Representatives unveiled its tax reform framework. The Economic Innovation Group (EIG) released the following statement:
“Tax reform presents a critical opportunity to address the lack of economic growth and opportunity in America’s distressed communities. Tens of millions of Americans live in parts of the country that have seen no meaningful recovery from the Great Recession. Ensuring that the benefits of economic growth reach more Americans should be a fundamental priority of Congressional leaders as they pursue this once-in-a-generation chance to overhaul the U.S. tax code. EIG looks forward to continuing to work with leaders in the House and Senate to ensure that innovative new ideas like the bipartisan ‘Investing in Opportunity Act’ are included in the final package.”
The Investing in Opportunity Act is a new policy designed to create jobs and restore opportunity to struggling communities. Visit this page to learn more.
