Senator Todd Young today released the following statement after President Donald Trump’s speech in Indianapolis outlining the details of his tax reform plan.
“President Trump made a convincing case today that this tax reform package will boost the economy and increase the take-home pay of every Hoosier. For the first time in 30 years, the prospects for a simpler tax code that lowers taxes for the working class and provides relief for small business owners looks good. Let’s seize this opportunity and deliver on our promises to the American people.”
While traveling with President Trump on Air Force 1, Senator Young also spoke with President Trump about the need for key infrastructure investments in Indiana, including Northwest Indiana’s South Shore double-tracking project and West Lake Corridor project. Senator Young said the following about that conversation.
“President Trump knows we need to make a significant investment in America’s infrastructure and he was receptive to the case I made for rail projects in Northern Indiana, locks and dams to move our home-grown goods, and rural broadband to keep Indiana connected to the world. I’m excited to work with the President on this issue and optimistic that we will get bipartisan support in Congress.”
