Press Release

MIAMI – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25), senior member of the House Budget and Appropriations Committees, released the following statement after the Bureau of Economic Analysis released its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) report for the third quarter of 2017.

“I'm very encouraged by this quarter's GDP report. After my district and many other communities across the country were battered by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Jose, these storms proved to be no match for the American spirit and our strengthening economy.

“This report clearly reinforces the economic policies of this Administration and Congress, including the curtailing of excessive and burdensome regulations. In the last 10 months, we have seen our economy steadily climb, but in order to continue that growth, we must pass tax reform. I'm looking forward to working with Speaker Ryan, Ways and Means Chairman Brady, and my colleagues to have a productive discussion on the key components of tax reform and how it'll positively impact the job market, our families, and the American economy.”
