But weve got to be responsible and work within the current State Budget to either replace it with another source or prove up that the economy will grow fast enough as a result of that policy change."
Thats what is behind all the Tax Reform were doing economic growth. Giving tax cuts and giving tax relief to anyone
that would receive more favorable treatment (after the bill passes) than they do today ... these are all the different things were looking at to not only reform the tax code and make it fairer & simpler but also to give relief which means a tax cut" Hilderbran said
