White Plains residents protest tax reform legislationPosted: Updated:
While President Donald Trump is hailing the tax reform bill passed by the Senate as a victory for all Americans, demonstrations have been popping up by critics across the state.
Protesters joined in White Plains Sunday to make their voices heard in response to the bill.
The Senate narrowly passed tax reform legislation early Saturday with no Democratic support. The Senate is set to move forward by reconciling the bill’s differences with the House’s version.
While President Trump says the bill will bring tax breaks for all, some protesters tell News 12 they fear the outcome will be the opposite.
Glenn Conway, of Irvington, says he worries that a change to his property taxes might force his family to have to sell their home.
Meanwhile, President Trump says he hopes to sign a completed bill by Christmas.
