Job Creators Network Supports House GOP Bills Providing Tax Credits to Businesses for PPE, COVID-19 Testing
Washington, DC (July 16, 2020) — Today, Job Creators Network (JCN) came out in support of two bills introduced by Ways and Means Republicans to help Americans return to a safe and healthy workplace.
The Healthy Workplace Tax Credit, introduced by Rep. Tom Rice (R-SC), would provide a tax credit for businesses to pay for COVID-19 testing, personal protection equipment (PPE), disinfecting, and similar safety measures. The Workplace Testing Tax Credit, introduced by Rep. David Schweikert (R-AZ), would provide a tax credit for businesses to pay for COVID-19 testing and other measures.
Alfredo Ortiz, JCN President and CEO, released the following statement:
“Small businesses are primed to lead America’s recovery, but a significant factor holding them back is the growing cost of PPE, testing, and other safety measures to protect their employees and customers. The two bills being introduced by Ways and Means Republicans today will help small businesses shoulder that cost so we can regain our economic footing and deliver on the promise of a ‘V-shaped’ recovery. This is a win-win-win for small business owners, their employees, and their customers. Furthermore, this should not be a partisan issue. JCN will work closely with Congressman Rice, Congressman Schweikert, and the Ways and Means Committee to promote these bills. We urge Speaker Pelosi to bring them to a vote before the August recess.”
