Congressmen helped improve Montana’s economy
“The nation is witnessing a pattern develop in one vital economic measurement, and it’s one that U.S. Sen. Steve Daines and U.S. Rep. Greg Gianforte can take some credit for.”
So wrote NFIB State Director Riley Johnson in a guest editorial in the Billings Gazette, which ran March 4.
“When the Senate debated a smaller tax reduction for Main Street businesses, Senator Daines led the fight for the full 20 percent deduction. His knowledge of small business was learned from his father’s construction business in Bozeman, which was an NFIB member. Congressman Gianforte, who fought for the Act’s passage in the House, also owns an NFIB-member firm.
“Great to have representatives with a fundamental understanding that small businesses are not smaller versions of big businesses. But enough politics for the moment. The economy is doing extremely well, and two tough Montanans deserve some of the credit.”
