Washington — Business Roundtable President John Engler issued the following statement on the newly elected House Republican leadership team for the 115th Congress:
“America’s business leaders congratulate Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and his team on their success in today’s leadership elections.
“Speaker Ryan and House committee chairmen spent this year doing much of the heavy lifting needed for a successful Congress in 2017. Their plan for action, ‘A Better Way,’ proposes a set of policies that will revive U.S. economic growth, encourage investment and help create higher-paying jobs.
“There is little doubt that modernizing our outdated tax system, taking a smarter and more effective approach toward regulation and focusing on education and training are essential to the growth strategy we need as a nation.
“With positive action by the House and Senate and the energy of the new Trump Administration, the United States can finally accelerate the growth that our workers, families and businesses seek. Business leaders are eager to work with Congress and a President Trump to turn opportunities into reality — one in which all Americans share in the nation’s success.”
