The USCCB offers moral criteria to assist Congress in their deliberations on the 'Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.' The changes proposed in this bill are significant and complex, affecting the entire nation. Current information indicates that the House is planning to move this bill quickly through the legislative process.

This is not a moment for hurried action, but thoughtful deliberation.
