‘This Week on America’s Business’

By February 15, 2008America's Business

Americas-Business-logo.jpgAmericans are already planning how to spend tax rebate checks they’ll get from the $168-billion economic stimulus plan.

But America’s newest senator, Republican Roger Wicker from Mississippi, said the plan’s business incentives are much more important than one-time checks.

“I think more so than the tax rebates are the job creating incentives that we provided for business to purchase equipment that helps create jobs,” said Wicker, who appeared on this week’s edition of “America’s Business with Mike Hambrick.”

“America’s Business” will also hear about a plan to fix the nation’s aging roads and bridges from Patrick Quinn, a member of the National Surface Transportation Policy and Revenue Study Commission. Quinn is also co-chairman of U.S. Xpress Enterprises Inc.

Marian Blakey, president of the Aerospace Industries Association will explain why U.S. aerospace exports are soaring and listeners will find out why the National Association of Manufacturers went to court to fight a lobbying disclosure law that threatens privacy of trade association members.

Do you want to get a coveted, environmentally friendly “green” label for your product or service? A Federal Trade Commission official will tell you how.

And to close the program, The National Association of Manufacturers President John Engler will give us “The Last Word.”
