Here's what Montana's congressional delegation says about tax reform

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON,  D.C. - Montana's two Republicans in Congress both said Wednesday they like President Trump new tax reform proposal, while the lone Democrat is taking a wait-and-see approach.

Sen. Steve Daines, a Republican, praised the proposal. 

“Montanans need more jobs, and bigger paychecks. The tax reform plan released today, which I like to call the American Jobs Act, is a step in the right direction to ignite our sluggish economy," the Republican said in a prepared statement.

Democratic Sen Jon. Tester said he want to see more discussion.

“There are some things I like, and some I don’t. I hope this is the beginning of a bipartisan discussion on tax reform. I want our tax code to work for Montana families and small business owners, without saddling our children with debt for generations to come," Tester said in a statement.

U.S. Rep. Greg Gianforte, a Republican, said tax reform is needed.

“Montanans are spending way too much time filling out tax forms. It’s going to allow most Americans to fill out their tax report on a postcard. One positive change for Montanans is the elimination of the death tax. This will allow a for a smooth transition of family farms and ranches in Montana," he said in an interview with Q2 News in Billings.
