America’s Leading Employers Applaud House Passage of H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act

November 16, 2017

Washington – Business Roundtable today issued the following statement applauding passage of H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, by the U.S. House of Representatives:

“We thank members of the House of Representatives for taking a historic step toward making America’s tax code an advantage, not an obstacle, for American workers, families and businesses of all sizes. A competitive corporate tax rate and a shift to a territorial tax system will allow U.S. businesses to compete and win, which will unleash capital investment – raising wages and creating jobs here in America. The Business Roundtable is committed to working with the U.S. Senate to advance pro-growth, pro-worker tax reform for the American people.”
