Conference Committee Beginning Work on Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

Conference Committee Beginning Work on Tax Cuts and Jobs Act


The Congressional Conference Committee (an ad hoc bipartisan and bicameral panel formed for the purpose of reconciling differences in legislation that has passed both chambers) for the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” has been named and the 29 conferees will begin working to combine the two bills this week.  APWA is encouraging our members who are represented by any of the conferees write their legislators, telling them to remove language that would harm important infrastructure finance programs such as tax-exempt municipal bonds and private activity bonds.

Members of the Conference Committee are: Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX), Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL), Rep. Diane Black (R-TN), Rep. Kristi Noem (R-SD), Rep. Rob Bishop (R-UT), Rep. Don Young (R-AK), Rep. Greg Walden (R-OR), Rep. John Shimkus (R-IL), Rep. Richard Neal (D-MA), Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI), Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-TX), Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ), Rep. Kathy Castor (D-FL), Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT), Sen. Michael Enzi (R-WY), Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), Sen. John Thune (R-SD), Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH), Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), Sen. Patrick Toomey (R-PA), Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR), Sen. Bernard Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-WA), Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ), Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), and Sen. Thomas Carper (D-DE).
