Congresswoman Mia Love’s Message 10-9-17
Greetings, my friends with the Chamber of Commerce:
I am excited to support a comprehensive Tax Reform plan that will create more jobs, bigger paychecks and fairer taxes for everyone. I am especially focused on helping individuals and families as well as small businesses save money on their taxes.
For small businesses, I’d like to limit the maximum tax rate for small and family-owned business to 25% – significantly lower than the top rate these businesses pay today.
For individuals, the tax reform framework shrinks the current seven tax brackets into three-12%. 25% and 35%-with the potential for an additional top rate for the highest income taxpayers to ensure the wealthy do not contribute a lower share of taxes than they pay today.

I’m proud that the House of Representatives passed my bill to provide funding to future Utah higher education students. The bill allows SITLA to acquire certain BLM land, which have already been identified as available for disposal, to be dedicated to Utah State University. This is a fairly simple bill, but it helps the federal government keep the promises made to the State of Utah, and to Utah students.
Our nation’s families and businesses have suffered because of broken federal immigration policies, and I’m ready to take action. Specifically after the President chose to sunset the DACA program, (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). I am cosponsoring the RAC Act (Recognizing America’s Children). The RAC Act would allow those we refer to as ‘Dreamers’ to earn a conditional, five year legal status, with a way to apply for citizenship. To earn legal status, they must pass background checks, obtain full-time employment, enroll in an institution of higher learning, or enlist in the armed services. I believe this is a sensible solution that should be bi-partisan, and will undo the band-aid approach that was the result of Presidential overreach three years ago.
