U.S. Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) voiced his concerns with a tax plan unveiled by House Republicans last week, saying there are several provisions he would like to see modified before the plan advances.

In a statement issued on Friday, Biggs said he opposes the removal of a tax credit for adoptive families and believes it should be “protected to incentivize American adoptions.”

In addition, Biggs said the legislation should take effect from Jan. 1, “allowing everyone to feel immediate effects of the reform.”

“Sadly, if this tax package was enacted today as currently written, Americans would have to wait over a year to receive most benefits,” he said.

Third, Biggs said the “tax rates need to be reduced for everyone,” but did not expand on that detail.
