In an open letter to Senators, 42 federal and state Conservative groups and activists today urged Senate passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. As the letter notes, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act reduces taxes for businesses and families, dramatically simplifies the code, and grows the economy. 

By voting for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, Senators have a rare opportunity to reform the tax code this year.

The full letter can be found here and is below:

Dear Senator:

We write in support of floor passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act dramatically simplifies the code and reduces taxes for families at every income level and for businesses large and small, regardless of whether they are corporations or pass-throughs. The tax legislation will also grow the economy, leading to higher wages and new or better jobs for Americans across the country.

The Senate Finance Committee should be applauded for completing a comprehensive regular order process that has included years of Committee hearings and Member input. Now, it is time for the full Senate to pass this legislation and reform the broken federal tax code.

We urge you and your colleagues to vote for this pro-growth, pro-family legislation.
