Senator Heidi Heitkamp today is releasing a statement ahead of President Donald Trump’s visit to Bismarck-Mandan next Wednesday.

Heitkamp says she’s underscoring the need to work with the White House, Republicans and Democrats in Congress to work toward a comprehensive, permanent tax reform plan that will help North Dakota small businesses, farmers and families.

 

“Ask any small business owner, energy industry worker, farmer or parent in North Dakota about what they think of the current U.S. tax code and they’ll most likely tell you that it’s broken,” said Heitkamp. “That’s why I’m glad to welcome President Trump to North Dakota where North Dakotans are eager to hear more about his tax reform plan. Too often, when North Dakota businesses and families want to plan for the future, our tax code leaves them twisting in the wind. That lack of certainty shuts our communities out of important investments that can create jobs, better schools and neighborhoods for our kids, and stronger local economies. And it’s why I’ve been pushing for both sides of the aisle to work together in Congress toward permanent, comprehensive solutions that will do away with loopholes and handouts for special interests and instead promote our small businesses, farm economy and energy industries with the fiscally responsible reforms they need to grow and expand.

 

“Any time a president comes to North Dakota, it’s a great opportunity to lay the groundwork for a better future for our businesses and our families. Now more than ever, I hope President Trump uses this visit to address the kitchen-table issues that keep the North Dakotans I’ve met with across the state this past month up at night. With low commodity prices, drought-stricken farms and ranches, and the need for a strong Farm Bill on the horizon, it’s imperative that President Trump uses this discussion to help all North Dakotans plan for a better, brighter future that not only improves our tax code, but protects our way of life.”

President Trump is expected to visit the Tesoro Refinery in Mandan next Wednesday September 6th. We will continue to update stories on his expected visit here on KX News
