NAM’s Timmons, Rep. Comstock Promote Tax Reform At Virginia Manufacturer.

In a press release, the National Association of Manufacturers (4/6) said that the NAM and Thermo Fisher Scientific “hosted Rep. Barbara Comstock (VA-10) for an employee town hall and business leader roundtable discussion on the historic tax reform law and its impact on Virginia’s 10th District” on Friday. NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons is quoted saying, “Thanks to leaders like Rep. Comstock who delivered on tax reform, manufacturers have been empowered to deliver on our own promises to invest in our workers and our communities, raise standards of living and grow and expand our businesses right here in the United States. There should be no doubt that manufacturing workers, the more than 12 million men and women who make things in America, are the real winners from tax reform and regulatory relief, and we’re proud to share that message at Thermo Fisher today.” According to the release, during the event “Rep. Comstock took questions from manufacturing workers at an employee town hall,” and “participated in a roundtable discussion with Thermo Fisher’s leadership, where they addressed the most important issues facing Virginia’s local business communities.” Rep. Comstock is quoted saying, “We had a great discussion with Jay Timmons, president and CEO of the National Association of Manufacturers, and the hardworking employees at Thermo Fisher Scientific. In January, Thermo Fisher Scientific announced bonuses and R&D investment thanks to the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.” She added that “this important pro-jobs legislation is spurring economic growth throughout the country and right here in the 10th Congressional District.” The Northern Virginia Daily (4/6, Bridges) also reported.
