Michigan Manufacturers Applaud House Passage of Historic Tax Reform Bill

The Michigan Manufacturers Association (MMA) 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.

“This is, without a doubt, great news for Michigan’s manufacturing workers. The passage of this bill puts us on track for bold, historic tax reform legislation that will empower manufacturers across Michigan and the United States. Manufacturers large and small know this reform would mean more jobs in America, more investment in America and more men and women making things in America,” said Chuck Hadden, MMA president & CEO. “Michigan manufacturers are grateful to the members who stood with us and voted for tax reform. And when the Senate takes up its tax reform bill in the coming days, we urge Senator Debbie Stabenow and Senator Gary Peters to stand with manufacturers as well. Don’t let us down. The current tax system is hurting workers in Michigan. Our elected leaders need to seize this opportunity, get tax reform across the finish line and send it to President Donald Trump’s desk. Manufacturers can’t wait any longer.”

“America witnessed history today as the House of Representatives passed the biggest, boldest tax reform in more than 30 years, and every member of Congress who voted for reform showed their constituents they are unequivocally standing up for American manufacturing workers,” added NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “This bill moves us closer to achieving the goals manufacturers have sought for decades, and for manufacturers across this country, there is no question that when tax reform becomes law, we’ll be empowered to create more jobs, invest more in America and help lift up working families and improve their lives.”

The following members of Congress from Michigan voted to improve the lives of manufacturing workers and all Americans:

  • Jack Bergman (R-MI-01)
  • Bill Huizenga (R-MI-02)
  • Justin Amash (R-MI-03)
  • John Moolenaar (R-MI-04)
  • Frederick S. Upton (R-MI-06)
  • Tim Walberg (R-MI-07)
  • Michael Bishop (R-MI-08)
  • Paul Mitchell (R-MI-10)
  • Dave Trott (R-MI-11)

Passage of H.R. 1 follows months of engagement by manufacturers with Congress and the White House on tax reform. The NAM’s most recent quarterly survey found that if comprehensive tax reform was enacted, two-thirds of manufacturers would increase capital spending and grow their businesses while more than half would hire more workers and increase employee wages and benefits.

Because of this legislation’s critical importance to manufacturers and their workers, the NAM key-voted passage of H.R. 1. The NAM’s key-vote letter to members of the U.S. House of Representatives can be found here.
