WASHINGTON, D.C. â€“  Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-08), a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and member of the House Small Business Committee, released the following statement Thursday:

“If this Congress is serious about standing up for middle class families and unleashing the power of the American economy, tax reform is the natural starting point.  What is needed is both a tax reform bill and a jobs bill that provides relief to middle class families and growth opportunity for small businesses. As one of just 10 Certified Public Accountants in Congress, I will read and review this entire measure before concluding, but my first impressions are very positive.  I firmly believe that it is our responsibility to capitalize on this once-in-a-generation opportunity; I look forward to supporting pro-growth tax reform.”
