June 1, 2017 | Press Releases

MARIETTA, OH – Today, U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) visited the Haessly Hardwood Lumber Company in Marietta, Ohio. Portman had the opportunity to visit with workers on site and discuss how his bipartisan Regulatory Accountability Act will help make federal regulations smarter and more effective so they better support Ohio business, families, and jobs. He also discussed the importance of reforming the tax code to help create more jobs with better wages and increase investment so that companies like Haessly Hardwood Lumber can expand.

“Jack Haessly and his family have built an incredible business in Marietta and I really appreciated the opportunity to visit with them and their employees. They work really hard, they’re highly skilled, and they are dedicated to producing the best product for their customers,” Senator Portman said. “This family business deserves a tax code and a regulatory process that make sense, and an economic climate that helps them create more jobs with better wages in Ohio.”

Portman’s top priority in the Senate continues to be boosting Ohio jobs and the economy. In recent interviews, Portman has described the urgent need to simplify our tax code and reform our burdensome regulatory system to encourage more job creation and investment in America, and he introduced the bipartisan RAA to do just that. Portman has been named a “Hero of Main Street” and “Fiscal Hero” for his work on these issues.
