Growing the Economy

Friday, July 17th, 2015

The economy is improving, but not fast enough. The labor participation rate is the lowest it’s been in generations because people have simply given up looking for a job. Meanwhile, families are forced to struggle with stagnant wages while the cost of living just keeps going up.

Ryan believes America is exceptional and our economy is strongest when Washington stops meddling with our livelihoods and lets us innovate and create jobs.

Ryan introduced the Resilient Federal Forests Act to revitalize timber communities and help prevent catastrophic wildfires – it was the first forest reform to pass the House in a decade. He is constantly working to rein in regulations on our natural resources, by introducing legislation like the Certainty for States and Tribes Act which will give tribal and local governments more of a say in how we manage our coal, oil, and natural gas. And he voted for permanent tax relief for farmers, ranchers and small businesses by voting for Section 179 tax credits and the Indian Coal Production Tax Credit.

Ryan is committed to growing our local economies and moving Montana and America forward.
