“The RATE Coalition is encouraged by today’s development in the United States Senate. The motion to proceed with the budget resolution is a motion to proceed with historic tax reform.

“The Senate’s adoption of the motion brings Congress one step closer to reducing America’s record-setting corporate tax rate – the highest in the industrialized world – and therefore, delivering a critical win for businesses of all sizes and the workers they employ. America can no longer afford to wait and wonder when or if tax reform will become a reality. We celebrate today’s legislative activity and remain committed to ensuring the final vote on the budget – the key to unlocking tax reform.”
