McLernon: Tax Reform Plan Will Make 'Missouri More Competitive'

WASHINGTON - Nancy McLernon, president and CEO of the Organization for International Investment, today issued the following statement in support of the newly released tax reform plan in Missouri:

“In today’s global economy, states like Missouri compete not only against other states for business and jobs, but also against other countries. Foreign direct investment is a significant driver of Missouri’s economy. More than 110,000 Missourians work for a U.S. subsidiary of an international company. The proposed tax plan makes Missouri more competitive for international companies to grow and create jobs because it lowers the state’s corporate tax rate while ensuring non-discriminatory treatment for all employers.”
