Vice President Mike Pence will visit Charlotte on April 20, according to a statement released by Congressman Robert Pittenger's office. 

Pence will join Pittenger, Senator Thom Tillis and Lt. Gov. Dan Forest on a panel to discuss the benefits of the Republican-led “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.” The proposed act would amend the existing tax code to reduce tax rates and offer credits and deductions for individuals and businesses.

Pittenger said Pence will talk about how that the act will affect North Carolina residents and businesses. 

“We are honored to welcome Vice President Pence to Charlotte to share stories of how tax reform is helping hardworking families and local businesses,” Pittenger said. 

The event will take place 3:15 p.m. Friday, April 20 at The Park Expo and Conference Center.
