Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-NY17/Rockland-Westchester), Ranking Member on the House Appropriations Committee, issued the following statement after House Republicans passed their tax reform bill 227 to 205 along mostly party lines:

“The Republican tax plan is a scam, and four Republican members of the New York congressional delegation are in on it. In voting to pass this bill, the vast majority of House Republicans approved a tax increase for millions of middle-class New Yorkers. This bill is a disaster for New York, and I will do everything I can to stop it.”
