More on Tax Reform
The U.S. House of Representatives passed Congressman Young's IRS Fair Appeals Saving Taxpayers (FAST) Act as a part of the Taxpayer First Act by a vote of 414-0 today.
Iowa Congressman David Young's legislation the IRS Fair Appeals Saving Taxpayers (FAST) Act was added to H.R. 5444, the Taxpayer First Act, and debated on the House floor today. A final vote is expected Wednesday evening.

Iowa Congressman David Young today pressed Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on the administration's proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum during a Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Subcommittee Hearing.
Iowa Congressman David Young issued the following statement on President Trump's proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum:
"Tariffs are taxes on Iowans and I oppose President Trump's move to impose tariffs on imported steel and aluminum. This action will hurt American employers, workers, and consumers and blunt the positive economic effects of the new tax relief law. The last thing we need is a trade war and this action will likely lead to retaliation."
