Republican Party of Texas Chairman James Dickey issued the following statement:

“Thank you to Republican Congressional leadership for passing historic tax reform, bringing us closer to lowering the tax burden for Texans and spurring economic growth. A special thanks to U.S. Representative Kevin Brady, R-The Woodlands, who chairs the critical House Ways and Means Committee, for leading this effort on the House side and both U.S. Senators from Texas––Ted Cruz and John Cornyn––for actively fighting for federal tax reform in the Senate.”
