Recently-passed tax reform has been crucial to this increased economic outlook. NAM president Jay Timmons was quick to credit the legislative achievement for producing these staggering results:
“Empowered by tax reform and regulatory relief, manufacturers are now investing in our people through new jobs, higher wages, bonuses and growing our operations right here in the United States.”
