Congresswoman Kay Granger (TX-12) today issued the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed a final budget resolution:

“The vote by the House on this budget resolution puts us one step closer to passing historic tax reform, which will overhaul our broken tax code, increase paychecks for Texans, and create jobs here in America. As Chairwoman of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, it was also vital we passed a budget to lay the groundwork to rebuild our military.  

“This budget delivers on my commitment to the people of the twelfth district to grow our economy and deliver real tax relief for individuals, families, and businesses. I am looking forward to working with my colleagues over the coming weeks to make taxes lower, simpler, and fairer.”
