Brady kicks off 2017 with new tax reform plan


U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady, representing Madison County in Washington, D.C., is preparing for the New Year as chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee.

Brady, a Republican, recently rolled out a “blueprint for pro-growth tax reform,” which proposes a simple postcard tax filing that is built for “the growth of families’ paychecks, the growth of job creators and the growth of the American economy.”

“We need a simpler, fairer tax code that protects taxpayers, not special interests – and helps America compete and win,” Brady said.

The congressman also has been touting his plans for economic recovery, border security and healthcare reform, all of which were recently unveiled on his website at Additional information is available at

Brady, who lives in Montgomery County, has never moved to D.C. despite being elected to 11 consecutive terms.

In a November interview with The Meteor, the congressman said he is ready to hit the ground running following the U.S. presidential election.

“Clearly America wants change,” Brady said. “One of Mr. Trump’s top priorities is to get this country moving and replace Obamacare and initiate tax reform. We’ve been in constant contact with the Trump transition team.”

Congressman Kevin Brady’s Huntsville and Conroe district offices are open to assist constituents Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Congressman’s office also has additional office hours in Madison County as a convenience for those who need assistance closer to home.

A congressional staffer will be in Madisonville from 9 to 11 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 5, at 113 West Trinity to provide help with federal agency issues, such as Social Security, Medicare, veterans benefits, the Internal Revenue Service and more.
