UPDATE: Congress meets in conference, moves to vote on a tax bill soon

Both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives have passed separate versions of The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (H.R. 1). This legislation benefits corporations and the wealthy over lower and middle-income families. The House and Senate reportedly have agreed on the content of the bill but it still needs to be passed by both chambers.

Weeks ago, hundreds of Lutheran advocates reached out to their legislators in opposition of the bill. The current proposal, which garnered almost unanimous opposition from the faith community, could reach a vote on final passage in the coming days. Lawmakers must continue to hear from people of faith from their districts to fully inform their decisions.

Email your members of Congress TODAY and find out more about faith perspectives of the tax proposal at the ELCA Action Center.
