(AUSTIN, TEXAS) December 22, 2017 — National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB)/Texas, the state’s leading small business association, said the most beneficial tax cuts for small business in three decades would not have been possible without U.S. Senator Cornyn and U.S. Representative Brady’s leadership and dedication.
“Our small business members have been extremely active in calling for tax reform from visiting with Senators and Representatives, to inviting the media to their business speaking with these media members on the importance of lessening the tax burden to better operate and grow their business,” said NFIB/Texas Executive Director Will Newton.
“Today’s tax reform passage demonstrates that the Texas Senators and Representatives serving in our nation’s capital recognized this need for entrepreneurs and heard the voice of small business.”
Federal taxes was cited as on the of top problems for Texas small business in the Problems and Priorities study conducted last year. The Texas Tribune reported that “Two Texas figures have been central to moving the bill forward: Cornyn, the lead Senate vote-counter, and U.S. Rep. Kevin Brady, the House Ways and Means committee chairman from The Woodlands.”
“Texas small business owners are grateful for the leadership and support of those Senate and House leaders and members who voted in favor for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Thank you.” said Newton.
