WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) today issued the below statement following House passage of H.R. 636, America’s Small Business Tax Relief Act.

“As hard-working taxpayers continue to struggle with stagnant wages, and America’s small businesses are slowed down by a heavy tax burden, the House passed a strong bipartisan bill to provide relief to our small businesses so they can create more jobs and jump start our economy,” Rep. Scalise said. “The America’s Small Business Tax Relief Act makes it easier for small businesses to help grow a healthy economy by providing job creators with the certainty they need.
