February 7, 2017 The United States Senate United States Capitol Washington, DC 20510 To the Members of the U.S. Senate: On behalf of the undersigned organizations, we strongly urge you to support Steven Mnuchin to serve as Secretary of the U.S. Department of Treasury. President-elect Donald Trump has chosen a businessman who knows that comprehensive business tax reform is the path to accelerate economic growth. Mr. Mnuchin would be an exceptional choice to lead the Department of Treasury, and we applaud the President for recognizing Mr. Mnuchin’s extensive experience in business and finance. For far too long, manufacturers have faced higher tax rates than any of our global competitors and an international tax system that stifles growth instead of bolstering U.S. competitiveness in the global arena. Manufacturers want the United States to be the best place in the world to manufacture and attract foreign direct investment, and there is no doubt that the U.S. tax code is a drag on economic growth and competitiveness. Business tax reform that will reduce the corporate tax rate to 25 percent or lower, lower rates for pass-through entities, shift to a modern territorial international tax system, strengthen R&D incentives and maintain a robust capital cost-recovery system will drive job creation. These changes would result in a boost of more than $3.3 trillion in investments, more than $12 trillion in GDP and more than 6.5 million jobs to the U.S. economy. Mr. Mnuchin, as Treasury Secretary, can take the steps necessary to make America more competitive, to create jobs, and boost the U.S. economy. We, the undersigned organizations, urge a swift confirmation of Mr. Mnuchin for Treasury Secretary Sincerely, AAON, Inc. ABICOR Binzel USA AC&S, Incorporated Accurate Felt & Gasket Mfg. Co.
