The House of Representatives and Senate passed Republicans’ $1.5 trillion tax cut bill with no Democratic support and only one GOP defection. Sen. Jeff Flake voted aye late last night.
Here’s how Arizona’s delegation voted and what they had to say about the bill:
Rep. Andy Biggs, a Republican, voted “yes”:
“The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will provide much-needed economic relief to American individuals, families, and businesses. Families will be able to save more money to send their children to college. We are already seeing the positive economic impact based on the promise of tax reform. When this bill is signed into law, we will see an even more robust economy. We understand that the tax cuts in this legislation belong to our constituents. Our constituents are better equipped than the federal government to stimulate our economy with their hard-earned money.”
