I rely on that expertise to write and set the record straight regarding tax reform. As ... Read more

    By U.S. Rep. Bill Flores Our current tax code is more than 30 years old; it is complicated and full of loopholes for special interests.

Hardworking American families deserve a tax code that is fair and simple while allowing them to keep more of their money to save for the future, educate their children and feel economically secure. With the recent House passage of the Tax Cuts and ... Read more

    By Rep. Bill Flores (R-TX) When my family left Spain for the New World in 1725, they came in search of liberty, opportunity, and security.

Nine generations later, I am among the fortunate in my family to have achieved the American Dream. Now, as a Representative in Congress, I am committed to making sure all Americans have the same opportunities that this country has provided to me. Growing... Read more
