Washington, D.C. - Congressman John Faso (R-Kinderhook) today released a statement following his vote against the House budget proposal, H.Con.Res.71, “Establishing the congressional budget for the United States Government for fiscal year 2018 and setting forth the appropriate budgetary levels for fiscal years 2019 through 2027.”

“I remain committed to the belief that we need comprehensive tax reform to benefit Upstate New York families and increase economic growth. We must provide middle class tax relief and lower the burdens on job-creating small businesses. I could not, however, vote in support of a budget resolution that singled out for elimination the ability of New York families to deduct state and local taxes. I am committed to finding a solution by working with the administration, congressional leadership, and members of both parties to reform our tax code in a manner that works for middle class families in Upstate New York and will allow our economy to grow.”
