AF&PA Responds to House Passage of the Build Back Better Framework
WASHINGTON – The American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) President and CEO Heidi Brock issued the following statement in response to the U.S. House of Representatives' passage of the Build Back Better Act framework.
“AF&PA cannot support the corporate tax increases put forth in the Build Back Better Act. These tax increases would significantly impact U.S. manufacturing jobs and undermine our nation’s economic recovery. We urge policymakers to recognize that our country is struggling under the worst inflation seen in three decades.
“Such short-sighted policies will have longer-term effects on U.S. manufacturing jobs, which includes the more than 950,000 hard-working people in the forest products industry. AF&PA calls on the U.S. Senate to vote ‘no’ on this legislation.”
