Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Congressman Leonard Lance (NJ-07) released the following statement after opposing the tax reform plan that eliminated the state and local tax deduction. 

“I believe tax reform should benefit all Americans and not pick winner states over loser states.  Yet the House-passed proposal would negatively affect too many hard-working constituents and small businesses in my congressional district and many other parts of New Jersey.  That’s why leading business groups and elected officials across the Garden State oppose this tax reform as currently drafted.  We need tax reform that is fair for all Americans — including the taxpayers of New Jersey — and I will continue to work toward that goal.”
