Statement on GOP Tax Reform Framework

September 27, 2017


WASHINGTON, D.C.–Mario H. Lopez, President of the Hispanic Leadership Fund, issued the following statement in response to the tax reform proposal release by President Trump and Congressional leaders:

“The Hispanic Leadership Fund applauds the tax reform framework—today’s proposal is the start of much needed reform to fix our country’s broken tax code.  We applaud the focus on relief for middle-class families, increasing the Child Tax Credit, substantially lowering the top rate for small and family-owned businesses, and lowering the corporate rate from the highest in the world to a level that will spur job creation and economic growth.

“This framework for tax reform is a step forward for working families, small businesses that power our economy, and anyone who wants to see better and higher paying jobs here in the U.S.  The Hispanic Leadership Fund stands ready to work with members of Congress for tax policy that strengthens our economy, creates jobs, and gives all families the opportunity to pursue the American dream.”
