Texas’ delegation to the US House voted down party lines for the historic tax cut on Thursday.

Authored by US Rep. Kevin Brady (R-The Woodlands) who chairs the Ways and Means Committee, the measure is designed to lower rates and simplify the federal tax code. On this week’s Texas Scorecard Radio, Cary Cheshire spoke with Brady about the bill and its importance.

All of Texas’ Republicans voted for it; all of the Democrats voted against it.
