“If it can work in our states, it can work for America.”

MADISON – Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and 20 additional governors from across the United States sent a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell urging them to pass meaningful tax reform legislation.

“America needs a tax cut…Since January 2011, Republican governors have enacted $62 billion worth of tax cuts for the hard-working people of our states, according to Americans for Tax Reform,” the governors wrote. “We urge the two chambers to pass meaningful tax reform legislation and send it to the President’s desk. We’ve proven in our states that you can cut taxes, create jobs, and generate budget surpluses all at the same time. If it can work in our states, it can work for America.”

Joining Governor Walker on the letter are Alabama Governor Kay Ivey, Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb, Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin, Maine Governor Paul LePage, Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant, Missouri Governor Eric Greitens, Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu, New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez, North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum, Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin, South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster, South Dakota Governor Dennis Daugaard, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam, Texas Governor Greg Abbott, Utah Governor Gary Herbert, and Wyoming Governor Matthew Mead.
