Rep. John Katko (R-Camillus)

The new tax law is the most significant piece of legislation to come out of the Trump Administration so far, but the Republican congressional delegation from New York was split on it. North Country Republican Elise Stefanik (R-Wilsboro) voted against the plan, saying it didn't do enough to preserve state and local tax deductions, which the final bill capped at $10,000.

One of the New York Republicans who did vote for the bill was Rep. John Katko (R-Camillus), who has voted against other Trump-backed bills in the past. This week, on a special one-hour edition of the Campbell Conversations, Grant Reeher talks with Katko about his vote on the tax bill, his reasons for supporting, what concerned him about it as well as this stance on some other issues being considered in Washington.
