Today, US Representative Sue Myrick (NC-09) joined with her colleagues from the Republican Study Committee to introduce The Jobs Through Growth Act, a bill that will grow our economy through three key reforms: tax reform, business regulatory reform, and domestic energy reform.
"The bill introduced today is what the American people and business owners have told us they need -- they need certainty," Rep. Myrick said. "This three part plan does just that".
Key actions of The Jobs Through Growth Act include:
Reform the Tax Code through lower tax rates for American families so that they are able to keep more of their hard-earned pay checks, and a lower corporate tax rate for businesses, making the US competitive in a global market. This bill also closes the loopholes that incentivize sending US jobs offshore.
Cut The Red Tape by preventing new regulations from being implemented until unemployment rates decrease, and by requiring Congressional approval of major regulations going forward.
Expand American Energy Production by opening up leases for exploration of and use of resourceson the Outer Continental Shelf and in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. This bill also approves the construction of the Keystone pipeline. All of these actions will create thousands of much-needed jobs and scale back our nation's dependence on foreign energy sources.
