EEI Applauds House Passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

WASHINGTON (November 16, 2017) – Edison Electric Institute (EEI) President Tom Kuhn issued the following statement today on the House passage of H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

"EEI's member companies strongly support pro-growth tax reform that boosts the economy and increases U.S. competitiveness, creates jobs, encourages private investment in critical energy infrastructure, and keeps energy bills as affordable and predictable as possible for customers. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act achieves these goals.

"We thank Chairman Brady and Speaker Ryan for their leadership in advancing this important legislation, which includes a number of provisions that will benefit customers. We hope the Senate will advance its version of tax reform legislation so the House and Senate can move quickly to conference.

"The single most important action we can do to grow our economy and to create jobs is to pass comprehensive tax reform this year, and this is a giant step forward in getting comprehensive tax reform across the finish line."
