At a time when job creation and economic growth are more important than ever, it is important to remember the fundamentals of what really increases economic opportunity for our citizens.
Because high taxes stifle economic growth, burdening families and job-creating businesses, I proudly support tax relief. Furthermore, our current tax system needs to be reformed. It is unfair, complex, and wasteful.
Modern roads, bridges, and airports are vital to economic development. For this reason, I work to make sure that the federal gas tax monies that Alabamians pay into the highway trust fund are returned to our state for needed improvements to our transportation system.
International investment has greatly benefited the State of Alabama. Thousands of jobs have been created by international companies who have located automobile factories, steel plants, and other facilities in our state. Trade and investment that benefits the people of Alabama will continue to have my support.
By keeping taxes low, reducing wasteful spending, supporting our entrepreneurs, and marketing Alabama's many competitive advantages including our schools and universities, we can continue to create good job opportunities for citizens in the 6th District and our state.
