At a time when Americans are starting to get into the holiday spirit, Congress has its foot on the gas pedal to pass a significant tax bill by year’s end. AEE supports Congress’ intention to lower the corporate tax rate and adjust the tax code to give certainty to businesses and let them do what they do best – invest, innovate, and create jobs. As a $200 billion industry supporting more than 3 million American workers, the advanced energy industry has much at stake in the sweeping revision of the tax Congress is aiming for. Unfortunately, the bills passed by the House and Senate each include troubling provisions that would undermine Congress’s goal of implementing a pro-growth strategy for the American economy. On Wednesday, AEE submitted its recommendations for the final legislation to congressional leaders.
