Timmons Calls on Mnuchin, Trump to “Make Our Economy Work Better for Everyone”

Washington, D.C., November 30, 2016 – National Association of Manufacturers President and CEO Jay Timmons released the following statement after the nomination of Steve Mnuchin as treasury secretary:

“Manufacturers welcome the nomination of Steve Mnuchin as treasury secretary and his commitment to accelerating economic growth with much needed tax reform. Tax reform that benefits manufacturing workers is one of the most important ways to jumpstart more jobs and opportunities for all Americans.

“Mr. Mnuchin has previously articulated exactly what manufacturers need to compete and win in a global economy: a fairer, simpler and more competitive tax code. That’s what we’ve called for in our ‘Competing to Win’ agenda, and that’s why we look forward to working with President-elect Donald Trump and Mr. Mnuchin to deliver on their promises and make our economy work better for everyone.”
