State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) issued the following statement today urging the Ohio House to call up House Bill 93, the Tax Returns Uniformly Made Public (TRUMP) Act, for its initial hearings:

“With Tax Day approaching, I can think of no better time to debate the TRUMP Act. Millions of Americans file their taxes this week each year, and an overwhelming majority want to know if their president has been doing the same.

“The American people deserve transparency and proof that their president is not beholden to foreign entities. Given the conflicts of interest that he openly flaunts, what kind of conflicts is this president hiding?

“The TRUMP Act would eliminate these questions by requiring five years of full tax returns before appearing on the Ohio ballot. That is why I am urging House leadership to bring the TRUMP Act up for a hearing right away.”

The TRUMP Act was introduced on February 27, 2017 and referred to the House Federalism and Interstate Relations Committee on March 7, 2017.
