Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) issued the following statement announcing that she will oppose the House tax bill scheduled for consideration today:

“I support comprehensive tax reform that provides tax relief to hardworking North Country families. I remain concerned about the elimination of the State and Local Tax Deduction which penalizes tax payers in high taxed states like New York. I will be voting no today to stand up for New York taxpayers in my district.

“This bill highlights the failure of New York State to rein in spending, and to reduce the tax burden for all New Yorkers.

“In the meantime, I will continue to work closely with my colleagues from other highly taxed states to ensure that the final tax reform package in Conference addresses these concerns and provides real tax relief for families in New York's 21st District.”
