Washington, DC — U.S. Representative Randy Hultgren (IL-14) released a statement following President Trump’s Joint Address to Congress:

“Tonight President Trump laid out a bold and optimistic plan for creating jobs across the country by cutting unnecessary regulations that are choking job growth and reforming our stifling tax code. As I have heard from countless small business owners and employers throughout my district, regulations and high taxes are the number one obstacle to hiring more workers. That hurts Illinois families and individuals who expect and deserve more. I look forward to the President signing legislation like the SCRUB Act into law. The bill passed the House this week and includes my legislation to get rid of outdated and duplicative regulations so businesses can get back to hiring and making things again. I look forward to the President working with Congress on reforming our tax system to one that is simpler and fairer for businesses and families. I look forward to working with the President to renew our infrastructure through municipal financing and local control over projects. I am encouraged by President Trump’s call for unity, and I urge all Americans to come together across our divisions and work together to build a stronger nation and a brighter future for our children.”
