Today, Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry (NC-10) released the following statement on the passage of H.Con.Res 71, the FY 2018 Budget:

“This morning the House took another important step towards reforming our nation’s broken tax code with passage of the FY18 budget resolution. This budget resolution increases funding for our national defense, balances in ten years, and includes almost $7 trillion in savings over the ten year window.

“More importantly, this resolution includes reconciliation instructions that enable tax reform to move forward. President Trump and Congressional Republicans are committed to advancing a pro-growth tax reform plan that empowers America’s middle class and creates good-paying jobs. Today’s vote is an essential step in that process.”
