“Innovation is the lifeblood of manufacturing in the U.S. and an integral part of our ability to succeed and create jobs in an increasingly competitive global economy. In order to maintain our mantle as the world’s leader in manufacturing innovation, the U.S. must consistently reinforce its commitment to the R&D tax credit.”

Jay Timmons, President & CEO
National Association of Manufacturers
