NAM’s Timmons Delivers ‘State of Manufacturing’ Address

This week, during his “State of Manufacturing” address, National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President and CEO Jay Timmons urged U.S. lawmakers to make permanent the 20% deduction for pass-through entities — a key provision in the 2017 federal tax law. Like other changes in the 2017 overhaul, the pass-through deduction is scheduled to expire at the end of 2025.

In other comments, Timmons credited the Trump administration for reaching a “phase one” trade deal with China, passing the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade agreement, and making “progress on 91.5% of the regulations that NAM members identified as needing to be modernized.” Read Timmons’ full address. 1/22/2020
