America First Policies Takes “Tax Cuts to Put America First” Tour to Fargo, North Dakota
America First Policies made its ninth stop on its “Tax Cuts to Put America First” tour yesterday, March 27, at the Delta Hotels by Marriott in Fargo, North Dakota.
The series, “Tax Cuts to Put America First,” features guest speakers discussing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act—signed into law by President Donald J. Trump in December 2017.
The event featured a panel with U.S. Senator for North Dakota John Hoeven; Michelle Killoran, chief financial officer of the Fargo-based Scheels All Sports sporting goods retail chain, which awarded bonuses to its associates as a direct result of the tax cut; and Jeffry Volk, president and CEO of Moore Engineering, who serves on the board of the Greater Fargo/Moorhead Economic Development Corporation. The panel discussed how the tax legislation is affecting North Dakota residents, families, and businesses, and the nation as a whole.
North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum also addressed the crowd of about 675 before Vice President Mike Pence took the stage.
“All told, we believe our tax cuts are going to save the typical family of four in North Dakota more than $2,600 every year when they take effect,” said the Vice President. “And as businesses invest their tax savings in their employees, North Dakota workers can expect to see pay raises, we believe, of more than $4,500 a year in the years ahead.”
