Sustained and strong economic growth, more entrepreneurship and small business growth, more opportunity and quality jobs for America

Washington, D.C. – Small Business and Entrepreneurship Council (SBE Council) president & CEO Karen Kerrigan issued the following statement in response to U.S. House passage of H.R. 1, the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act:”

“Our nation and its entrepreneurs are one step closer to realizing significant tax relief and a much more competitive tax system that will encourage – not punish – the growth and success of their firms. H.R. 1 is a powerful package of tax relief measures that will provide small business owners and entrepreneurs with the capital they need to invest, compete, and reward their workforce. The pro-investment attributes of H.R. 1 will fuel an improving economy and create sustainable growth, which means more entrepreneurship, innovation, and better paying jobs.

“Small business owners and entrepreneurs congratulate every House member who worked diligently to support tax reform and who voted for the final conference report.  Entrepreneurs and small business owners are optimistic about 2018 and ready for a tax system that supports their dreams and growth. We look forward to Senate passage of H.R. 1 and the signing of this historic legislation by President Trump as soon as possible.”


Karen Kerrigan,
