Updates Leaders on Solutions to Grow the Economy & Create Jobs

Westerville — Congressman Pat Tiberi (R-OH) recently (Aug. 4) met with local business and community leaders with the Genoa Township Business Association. Tiberi updated members on progress the House of Representatives has made on solutions that grow the economy and foster a better environment to create jobs.

“You may not always hear about it on cable news but the House is making progress on priorities for Ohioans and the American people,” said Tiberi. “We passed more bills in the first six months of this administration compared to the previous four. For example, we’ve advanced over a dozen jobs bills that cut Obama-era regulations that were holding back Ohio small businesses, employers, farmers and workers. Overall, these regulatory reforms will save Americans $3.7 billion in regulatory costs and 4.2 million hours in filing paperwork.”

As a senior member of the Ways and Means Committee, Rep. Tiberi also highlighted that the Committee is undertaking an historic effort to overhaul the tax code for the first time in 31 years.

“Our number one goal for tax reform is to unlock economic growth here at home,” said Tiberi. “I appreciated this opportunity to meet with our local business leaders and employers so they could share how a simpler and fairer tax code will help them create jobs and boost wages for central Ohioans. As the Ways and Means Committee continues our work to deliver permanent, pro-growth tax reform this year, I’ll be keeping their priorities in mind.”

All month as he travels Ohio’s 12th District, Rep. Tiberi will also be sharing 31 reasons why Americans need tax reform. Follow along on Facebook & Twitter.

Tiberi Statement on July Jobs Report

U. S. Congressman Pat Tiberi (R-OH), chairman of the Joint Economic Committee, today (Aug. 4) issued the following statement regarding the employment report for July 2017 by the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

“It is encouraging to see job gains continue at a strong pace this year, especially since the increases are broadly-based. Another uptick in workforce participation is a positive sign demonstrating Americans’ growing confidence in the economy.

“We still have much work to do to increase opportunities for workers to earn more and advance in their careers. But to truly unleash the job-creating power of American employers, we must continue to reduce regulatory overreach and overhaul our tax code. Tax reform will allow U.S. businesses to compete on a level playing field and allow workers to keep more of their hard-earned money to better support their families.”

Note: Today’s report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that the U.S. economy added 209,000 non-farm payroll jobs in June and the unemployment rate is 4.3 percent. The labor force participation rate is 62.9 percent.
