It was an honor to join President Trump, Administration officials, and my colleagues today at the White House to highlight this once-in-a-generation tax relief bill that will give hardworking families in Nevada the tax cuts that they’ve been waiting for.
From bringing Secretary Mnuchin to Nevada to hear directly from my constituents to working closely with Ivanka Trump to increase the child tax credit, I’ve made sure that Nevadans’ voices were heard by the Administration as we worked with the White House to put together and pass the first tax relief package in more than 30 years.
Whether it’s the dad in Las Vegas who is worried about how he’ll afford to send his daughters to daycare next year or the small business owner who wants to grow and hire more workers, Nevadans will have more opportunities to get ahead and work toward a brighter future because of the passage of this legislation.
I was proud to work with Senator Scott to secure a provision that doubles the child tax credit from current law, and I’m proud of our work on the Senate Finance Committee to move this bill across the finish line.
This bill lowers rates for middle-class families and eliminates Obamacare’s onerous individual mandate tax penalty to provide tax relief to tens of thousands of Nevadans who otherwise would be forced to pay a fine that they likely cannot afford. Nevadans win and Americans around this country win when the President signs these critical tax cuts into law.
