“Congressman Lance is a champion of the medical technology industry,” Bard’s chairman and CEO Timothy Ring said. “From lower taxes to streamlined regulations, New Jersey appreciates Congressman Lance’s work to advance policies that create jobs and promote innovation here in our state and around the country.”
Policies on taxes, energy and trade have made it 20 percent more expensive to do business in the United States, according to NAM, which specifically cited Lance for voting to lower the corporate tax rate.
“Lowering tax rates to compete globally, easing the burdens of regulations, leveraging American-made energy and providing economic incentives to start new projects all will facilitate the type of manufacturing backbone our economy needs,” Lance said. “Companies like Bard need to innovate and grow. Part of my work in Congress is to ensure they have the tools to do so.”
