Wicker Votes ‘Yes’ on Final Tax Plan

Historic Tax Reform, More Take-Home Pay for Mississippi Families Heads to Trump’s Desk This Week

December 19, 2017

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., today voted in favor of the final tax plan negotiated between the House and Senate. This is the first update to the nation’s tax code since 1986.

“This is an accomplishment of historic proportion,” Wicker said. “Working with President Trump, Congress has successfully overhauled the tax code to make it simpler, fairer, and smarter. Starting next year, Mississippi families will begin to see more take-home pay and an economy that continues to pick up steam. Job creators and small businesses – the lifeblood of our economy – will have more capital to invest and innovate. This is a big win for the American people built on conservative principles.”

The Republican tax plan also includes a repeal of the Obamacare individual mandate tax, providing additional relief to low- and middle-class families. If those victories were not enough, the bill also makes a small section of Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge available for energy exploration for the first time.
