Lance Statement on Tax Plan Proposal

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Congressman Leonard Lance (NJ-07) released the following statement after the release of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act:

“I commend Speaker Ryan and Chairman Brady for their hard work and efforts.  There is much to like in the legislation but the proposed cap on deductibility of state and local taxes makes the bill unacceptable at this time.  Eliminating or rolling back state and local tax deductibility will hurt New Jersey’s hard-working middle-class families and our state economy.  I am going to continue to negotiate on the issue.  We have made some progress but more needs to be done.”
