Washington, D.C. (KNSS) - Kansas Senators Jerry Moran and Pat Roberts both voted in favor of the Senate’s tax reform bill, which passed the Senate 51-49.

In a press release, Senator Moran said, “It’s been more than three decades since Congress has reformed our tax code and Americans can no longer afford the status quo of an outdated, complicated tax system. Today I supported a fiscally-responsible, pro-growth tax reform bill that benefits middle-class families and enables businesses to compete in a 21st century economy."
Senator Roberts issued this statement:

“Tonight the Senate made history and approved historic tax reform to once again make government a partner in our success, not an adversary.  Everyone understands tax reform is critical. All of us in the Senate – on both sides of the aisle – are familiar with the burdens, the complexity, and lack of competitiveness associated with our current tax system. It is abundantly clear that this complexity and our antiquated corporate tax system act as a brake on our economy."

The Senate-approved bill now goes to a conference committee to reconcile differences in the House and Senate versions of the bill.
