TechNet Welcomes Growing Momentum for Tax Reform
Washington, D.C. – TechNet, the national, bipartisan network of innovation economy CEOs and senior executives, welcomed today’s announcement by the House, Senate, and Trump Administration outlining the way forward on tax reform legislation this year. The following statement is attributable to TechNet President and CEO Linda Moore:
“Tax reform has waited long enough, and we welcome today’s announcement outlining the path forward to finally get it done this year. We appreciate the work that the House, Senate, and administration have put into this issue so far, and thank them for welcoming our perspective on the best way to promote growth and job creation in the innovation economy. Now the hardest work begins, and it is essential to seize this opportunity to maximize job creation and increase investment for sustainable, long-term economic growth.
“The American economy simply cannot grow at its full potential without a thriving technology sector, just as the technology sector cannot succeed without the right federal policies in place. From the perspective of America’s innovators, there is no single federal policy being considered by Congress and the administration that holds as much potential to unleash a wave of dynamic and robust job creation as tax reform. As the tax debate moves forward, we look forward to being a partner in this effort.”
