Lee Zeldin Opposes Republican Tax Bill

Republican Representative Lee Zeldin said he would not support the tax reform legislation introduced by Republican congressional leaders on Thursday.

“I am a ‘no’ to this bill in its current form. We need to fix this state and local tax deduction issue. Adding back in the property tax deduction up to $10,000 is progress, but not enough progress,” Zeldin said in a statement.

A number of lawmakers from New York opposed eliminating the deduction for state and local taxes.
