Manufacturers Applaud House Passage of Historic Tax Reform Bill


The Ohio Manufacturers’ Association (OMA) and the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) praised the passage of H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, by the U.S. House of Representatives today. In a news release, OMA president Eric Burkland said, “This is great news for Ohio’s manufacturing workers. The passage of this bill puts us on track for bold tax reform legislation that will empower manufacturers across Ohio and the U.S. Manufacturers large and small know this reform would mean more investment in America and more men and women making things in America. “Ohio manufacturers are grateful to the members of the House who voted for tax reform. And when the Senate takes up its tax reform bill in the coming days, we urge Senators Brown and Portman to stand with manufacturers as well. The current tax system is hurting workers in Ohio. Our elected leaders need to seize this opportunity, get tax reform across the finish line, send it to President Donald Trump’s desk, and grow the American economy.” Here are the members of Congress from Ohio who voted to improve the lives of manufacturing workers and all Americans: Steve Chabot (R-OH-01); Brad Wenstrup (R-OH-02); Jim D. Jordan (R-OH-04); Robert E. Latta (R-OH-05); Bill Johnson (R-OH-06); Bob Gibbs (R-OH-07); Warren Davidson (R-OH-08); Michael R. Turner (R-OH-10); Patrick J. Tiberi (R-OH-12); David Joyce (R-OH-14); Steve Stivers (R-OH-15); and Jim B. Renacci (R-OH-16). 11/16/2017
