(Washington, D.C.) The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) issued the following statement today from Pamela G. Bailey, president and CEO, following the Senate’s vote to pass its version of tax reform legislation.
“Last night’s Senate vote is a critical breakthrough towards final approval of a tax reform bill that will help American manufacturers stay competitive and fuel the purchasing power of our nation’s consumers. The food, beverage, and consumer products industry has long supported common-sense tax reform to help level the playing field for American manufacturers and workers. We now urge the Senate and House leaders to quickly reconcile any differences between the Senate and House bills, so the first major tax overhaul in 30 years can be passed and signed into law. Tax reform will benefit consumers, workers and manufacturers.”
