WASHINGTON (June 27, 2017) – With today’s announcement of principles for tax reform by White House officials and Congressional leaders, the BUILD Coalition released the following statement:
“The BUILD Coalition appreciates the administration and Congressional leaders working closely to establish a sound foundation for tax reform in advance of the legislative process. Today’s announcement shows that they are taking a fresh approach to this critical issue.
“As policymakers turn to the details, the BUILD Coalition encourages them to remain focused on achieving their goal of pro-growth tax reform. Essential to this effort is maintaining the full deductibility of interest expense for all businesses, regardless of size or sector, so they can continue to make the long-term investments that create U.S. jobs and help drive growth.
“We look forward to working with Congress and the administration on tax reform that helps American companies grow and compete in the global economy.”
