Statement by U.S. Secretary of Labor Acosta on Tax Reform Signing

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta issued the following statement today regarding President Trump’s signing of tax reform legislation:

“Tax reform will continue the strong economic growth we’ve seen this year. Tax reform is about job creation and is great news for any American who has a job, is looking for a job, or creates jobs.
