JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

President Donald Trump Friday signed into law a $1.5 trillion tax overhaul package with large tax cuts for corporations and wealthy Americans and smaller cuts for middle and low-income families.

Republican state senator Chris McDaniel supports the new law, but said it's only a beginning. 

"This tax reduction is a good thing, but we still pay far too many taxes," McDaniel said. "The federal government is still far too big for its own good. Yes, it has to be a good first step, that's all it is, just a first step. The next step, full, dramatic tax reductions across the board, that's what I want to see."

McDaniel said he is still considering a run next year for the U.S. Senate or Lieutenant Governor.

In the meantime, he is hosting an annual free turkey giveaway Saturday at an Ellisville church.
