As you know, BCI has a close relationship with the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM). On Thursday, October 19, they updated us on their efforts to advance the President's major tax reform package through Congress, which cleared a significant hurdle when the Senate passed a budget resolution. The NAM tells us that although this is an important milestone, tax reform is not assured, and it will take grassroots advocacy from the entire manufacturing community to get across the finish line.
View the NAM's actions to date, and show your support for tax reform by taking action in one of the following ways.
- Share your voices and your stories. Share your story of what tax reform would mean to your workers and your company - and ask them to do the same. NAM has made it easy for you and your employees; simply answer these key questions here. The NAM can then use those stories to show lawmakers why their support for reform means bigger paychecks, more jobs and more manufacturing in the United States.
- Engage manufacturing workers. As manufacturing leaders, we need to ensure our employees understand why it's important that we fix our outdated tax code, and this messaging can help you. We need to articulate the impact that tax reform will have on manufacturers and their families.
- Urge your team to speak out. We need manufacturing employees to call on their members of Congress to act on tax reform without delay. Please encourage the members of your team to reach out to their elected officials by sending them this link to take action on tax reform. When speaking with your employees, ask them to text "ActOnTax" (all one word, no spaces) to 52886 to send a message to their members of Congress to act on tax reform.
