Smith introduces bill to permanently protect American Families

SEMO Times, May 23, 2018

The harder your work, the more the government wants to take…that just isn’t fair. Last Christmas, I worked with President Trump to help author and get signed into law the most significant tax relief for Missouri farmers, small business owners and families in the last 30 years. Key to that was lowering rates on your family, doubling the standard deduction and enhancing the per child tax credit. You should be rewarded for having a family, not punished. Unfortunately Senate Swamp rules, the filibuster, only allowed us to make those changes for the next several years, well now we need to make them permanent. This week I introduced legislation to do just that, to provide certainty to you and your family that the low rates you now know, wont be increased because of arcane Senate procedural rules.
