NEW YORK — Michael A. Peterson, President and COO of the Peter G. Peterson Foundation, commented today following the release of the "Tax Reform Act of 2014," by Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp:
"Chairman Camp deserves credit for putting forward a constructive proposal to address our broken tax code. His draft legislation presents a valuable and long-overdue opportunity for our nation’s policymakers to begin a real conversation about tax reform — an issue at the heart of our nation’s economic future. A well-crafted, bipartisan reform plan would not only make the code more simple and more fair, but could also boost our economy and improve our fiscal outlook over the long term."
