Young applauds Camp's ‘simpler, flatter, fairer' tax reform draft

Rep. Todd Young (R-IN9), a member of the House Ways and Means Committee, released the following statement this afternoon after Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp unveiled draft tax reform legislation:

“For the first time in nearly three decades, we have draft legislation that would make our tax code simpler, flatter, and fairer.  Since the last substantial reforms in 1986, our tax code has become larded up with narrowly-tailored provisions that make it increasingly complicated for American families and businesses to prepare their taxes.  Not only would compliance be easier, but the Joint Committee on Taxation score makes clear this bill would spur hiring, increase personal incomes, and promote economic growth. I applaud Chairman Camp for his leadership throughout this process, and look forward to continuing to work with the Ways and Means Committee to refine this draft.”—Rep. Todd Young (R-IN9)
