Letter Supports Targeted Tax Incentives, Increased Investment

WASHINGTON, D.C. January 28, 2009 - National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President and Chief Executive Officer John Engler sent a letter to House leaders yesterday urging them "to move quickly on a legislative package to help get America working again."

Engler told majority and minority leaders that manufacturers "recognize that immediate action is needed to address the unprecedented challenges faced by all sectors of the economy," adding that "a balanced tax and investment package designed to have an immediate impact on job providers, and the people who depend on them, will go a long way to spur economic revitalization."

The NAM delineated several specific tax incentives and spending priorities that will encourage manufacturing, including extending the carry back period for net operating losses, broad investment incentives, incentives for investment in energy efficiency and renewable energy, investment in health information technology, and additional funding for highways, aviation, and waterways. In addition, Engler said that a proposed 20 percent income tax deduction for small businesses "would also strengthen the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act by freeing up more money for job creation and investment."

The text of Engler's letter is at:
