My Approved PortraitsU.S. Senator Joe Donnelly released the following statement after traveling with President Trump to Indianapolis and attending his speech on tax reform at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.

Donnelly said, “I work for Hoosiers, not President Trump or any political party. As it stands, the framework released today is missing many details that will be critical to determining whether working- and middle-class families truly stand to benefit. These Hoosiers will be foremost in my mind as I continue to engage with my colleagues in the Senate and also with the White House to try to craft a tax reform bill that will provide greater economic security to these families and also create and protect jobs here in Indiana.”

Tax reform legislation has not yet been introduced in the U.S. Senate or U.S. House of Representatives.

During a recent dinner at the White House, Donnelly discussed his proposal to address the outsourcing of American jobs by supporting companies that invest in American workers and penalizing companies that ship jobs to other countries. In February, in a meeting at the White House, Donnelly discussed the End Outsourcing Act with President Trump and the President expressed his support for the proposal. This came after Donnelly introduced the End Outsourcing Act in January.
