Statement by U.S. Secretary of Labor Acosta On Senate Passage of Tax Reform

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta issued the following statement today regarding Senate passage of the tax reform bill:

“Senate passage of tax reform is continued good news for America’s job creators and job seekers. Reducing taxes and reforming the tax code will help businesses of all sizes hire more Americans and invest in the workforce. President Trump has brought a spirit of economic optimism back to our nation, with nearly 1.5 million jobs created since January, the lowest unemployment rate in 17 years, and two consecutive quarters of GDP growth over 3 percent. Tax reform will create the conditions for continued economic growth and even more job creation.”
