NOIA Applauds Passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act
Washington, D.C. – National Ocean Industries Association (NOIA) Randall Luthi issued the following statement after Congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act:
“The passage of long overdue tax reform legislation will open the door to a more competitive America. U.S. businesses and workers, particularly those in the energy industry, are unrivaled in their grit and ingenuity, and they deserve a tax system that provides certainty, clarity and simplicity. With today’s vote, American workers can keep more of their hard-earned paychecks and American businesses will be able to reinvest more of their earnings. In other words, the new tax system will increase America’s ability to produce energy and compete globally, bringing more jobs, more investment and more opportunities to our shores.
“NOIA thanks Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) and House Committee on Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX), along with all of the bill’s supporters, for their tireless work on this fundamentally important issue and for a job well done.”
