Report from St. Paul: Bunning and the R&D Tax Credit

By September 3, 2008Policy Experts, Taxation

(NAM Executive Vice President Jay Timmons is blogging from the Republican National Convention this week in St. Paul, Minn., following up on his reports from the Democratic Convention last week in Denver.)

NAM member company Brown-Forman honored the Kentucky delegation this afternoon and Sen. Jim Bunning was ready to talk policy.

An ardent advocate for a permanent R&D tax credit, he is ready to roll up his sleeves in the next Congress to get it done.

Without the predictability and consistency of a permanent credit, businesses can’t plan and vital research is often delayed.

As we search for new energy alternatives, it only makes sense that Congress unleash the creativity of American ingenuity. Senator Bunning understands that basic fact.
