WASHINGTON, D.C. — The draft tax reform legislation released today by Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) brings issues critical to our nation’s continued economic growth from thought to action.
In addition to several measures designed to simplify the tax code, the “Tax Reform Act of 2014” dedicates $126.65 billion to the Highway Trust Fund (HTF).
“We are pleased that Chairman Camp has moved the debate on tax reform from one of theory to one of fact, said Gregory M. Scott, president and CEO of the Portland Cement Association (PCA). “A simpler tax code that addresses our nation’s complex needs such as funding our struggling Highway Fund is the right thing. America’s cement manufacturers look forward to working with Congress on this historic journey.”
Based in Washington D.C. with offices in Skokie, Ill., the Portland Cement Association represents cement manufacturing companies in the United States. It conducts market development, engineering, research, education, and public affairs programs. More information on PCA programs is available at www.cement.org.
