ABC Releases Statement on Critical House Vote in Tax Reform Process

WASHINGTON, Oct. 26—Michael D. Bellaman, president and CEO of Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), released the following statement on the U.S. House of Representatives today adopting a Senate budget resolution, which preserves the path to tax reform:

“We applaud House members for adopting the FY 2018 budget resolution that positions Congress to move forward with comprehensive, pro-growth tax reform without the threat of a filibuster. Construction historically faces the highest effective tax burden of any industry. The united tax reform framework is a unique opportunity to create jobs, grow the economy and provide needed relief to working families and small businesses. Now that the real work can begin on crafting the details of a tax reform bill, we hope Congress acts with urgency to get something done.”
