House adopts Senate budget, takes step toward tax reform

ㅤ”Twenty Republicans voted against the budget in the 216-212 vote, more than the 18 who voted against the original House version earlier this month.
ㅤMost of the 20 defectors were centrists hailing from populous states that could stand to lose from eliminating the state and local tax deduction.
ㅤThose lawmakers included Reps. Dan Donovan (N.Y.), John Faso (N.Y.), Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.), John Katko (N.Y.), Pete King (N.Y.), Leonard Lance (N.J.), Frank LoBiondo (N.J.), Tom MacArthur (N.J.), Chris Smith (N.J.), Elise Stefanik (N.Y.), Claudia Tenney (N.Y.) and Lee Zeldin (N.Y.).”
