Meantime 24th District Congressman John Katko also wound up voting for the bill. In a written statement he said , “The tax reform legislation before the House today, while not perfect, is a good start. I’ve carefully reviewed this bill and consulted with local families, small business owners, and individuals throughout our community. Their message was clear: our tax code is too complex and it places an unfair burden on working families.”
