Plans to Continue Working With Congressional Colleagues to Improve the Legislation Prior to Final Conference Package Being Agreed to and Voted Upon

WASHINGTON - Today, Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1) issued the following statement after voting against the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (H.R. 1):

“My goal in this tax reform mission has always been to ensure that the hardworking men and women of Long Island keep more of their paycheck, reduce their cost of living, and be able to save more for retirement. While I like many aspects of this tax reform plan, too many of my constituents would not see tax relief under this plan as it is currently drafted. Adding back in the property tax deduction up to $10,000 was progress, but not enough progress. This fight is not over. I look forward to continuing negotiations to improve this proposal for my constituents. If I’m not fighting for my home state and my home district, I cannot expect another Member of Congress from some other state to do that for me.”
