Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) released the following statement today on the Senate Finance Committee completing markup of tax reform legislation:
"I applaud Chairman Hatch and the Senate Finance Committee in taking another step forward in providing much-needed tax relief for hard working American families. I am pleased that the Finance Committee has followed the regular order by holding numerous hearings and spending four days debating the bill and considering amendments in committee. As Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, I value the process of moving important pieces of legislation through regular order. I am hopeful that when we return from the Thanksgiving recess to consider tax reform on the Senate floor, we will see this process continue, with both sides of the aisle having sufficient opportunity to debate the merits of tax reform and offer amendments."
