Tax Reform Work

FLS was proud to be part of the effort to pass historic tax reform in 2017.

For the House of Representatives, we partnered with a national grassroots group to connect constituents with their Members of Congress utilizing Patch and Automated Calls. For Patch Calls, we completed 5,300 Patch Calls in the lead up to the vote in Congressional and District offices of targeted Members of Congress. We also provided 4 Rounds of Automated Calls to targeted Members for a total of 1.8 million calls nationwide.  In total, we completed 2.9 million phone calls to Members of Congress urging passage of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act of 2017.  This  important bill was approved by the House of Representatives on November 16, 2017 on a vote of  227–205 and was sent to the U.S. Senate for consideration.

For the Senate, we also partnered with a national coalition to ensure passage.  In October 2017, we began a Patch Call program to key U.S. Senators from thousands of their constituents to express support for the Senate Budget so Tax Reform could be brought forth.  After completing 3,100 Patch Calls, a majority of  these key Senators announced their support for the Senate Budget and Tax Reform.

In November, we assisted another national grassroots group to connect 1,400 concerned citizens to the Washington D.C. office of Senators who publicly stated they could not support the current version of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act.  The support of these Senators was critical to passing tax reform.  On December 2, 2017 the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act was approved by the U.S. Senate on a 51-49 vote.  This included the support of all Senators who received Patch Calls from voters back home.  In total, FLS delivered 4,500 Patch Calls to key US Senators to support tax reform.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 was signed into law by President Trump on December 22, 2017.
