Press Release

(Lincoln, NE) – Congressman Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE) today issued the following statement on tax reform.

“This is a first step at a massive, historic, and necessary overhaul of our antiquated, harsh, and complicated tax system. The disruptive effects of globalization, the slowing of Main Street entrepreneurial momentum, and the inability of families to get ahead make the conditions right for substantive change. Fortunately, there is widespread unity around the goals of putting money in the pockets of hardworking American families, empowering small businesses to thrive, and reviving Made in America—while maintaining the higher rate for the ultra-wealthy.”

Fortenberry serves on the House Appropriations Committee.
