NMA Welcomes Pro-Growth Tax Bill

National Mining Association (NMA) president and CEO Hal Quinn today issued the following statement urging Senate passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act:

“America’s mining industry urges the Senate to pass the tax bill to stimulate economic growth and job creation. U.S. mining faces one of the highest total tax rates among the leading mining nations.”

“The tax bill moving through Congress will improve our global competitiveness and stimulate additional investment, producing more high-wage jobs for American workers, more affordable energy from the nation’s world-leading coal supply and sustainable mineral production that we need for manufacturing, technological innovation, national defense and infrastructure improvements.”
