CWN Editor's Note: Bishop Frank Dewane, chairman of the US bishops’ Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development, praised the Tax Reform and Jobs Act, passed by both houses of Congress, for “doubling the standard deduction, ... expanding the use of 529 education plans, and increasing the child tax credit.” He criticized several aspects of the bill, including “the repeal of the personal exemption, [which] will cause larger families, including many in the middle class, to be financially worse off.”
