'Seize this opportunity'

Twenty-nine coalitions and trade associations are urging a pro-growth tact for the upcoming Budget Conference Committee.
A statement to the committee reads: "The undersigned coalitions and trade associations share a common interest in pro-growth, comprehensive tax reform in the United States. We believe tax reform, done right, will create jobs, encourage more investment, and spur economic growth. A growing economy will also help the U.S. shrink its budget deficit. We urge the budget negotiators to seize this opportunity to pave the way for pro-growth, comprehensive tax reform in 2014."
