FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Washington, D.C. – Today, the U.S. House passed H. Con. Res. 71, the Fiscal Year 2018 Budget Resolution, and the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council (SBE Council) praised members who voted in favor of the budget resolution, which moves the nation one step closer to tax reform and a more prosperous and dynamic economy for all Americans.  SBE Council KEY VOTED the House vote, which they said was critical to advancing tax reform for small businesses and entrepreneurs in 2018.

“Tax reform is currently the most critical issue for entrepreneurs and small business owners. Transforming the tax system to one that encourages entrepreneurship, investment and small business success will foster the sustainable growth our economy needs to provide financial security and opportunity for all Americans. Passage of the Senate-passed budget resolution by the House today means tax reform for America is in clear sight,” said SBE Council president & CEO Karen Kerrigan.

“Entrepreneurs and small business owners have great confidence for the future, but tax reform is needed to solidify and fuel that confidence for 2018 and beyond.  A tax system that encourages investment and growth will significantly impact this vital sector of the economy. It will also help spur more risk-taking and entrepreneurship, which is desperately needed to strengthen quality job creation, economic dynamism, innovation and a more competitive America.  We are grateful for every House member who voted in favor of the Senate-passed budget resolution. Now, let’s keep the tax reform ball moving. Entrepreneurs are excited about the next steps, and getting a tax reform package to President Trump’s desk as quickly as possible,” added Kerrigan.
