This arrived from the Brewers Association today:
With the introduction of HR 836, the Brewers Excise and Economic Relief Act of 2009, seeking a 50% reduction in the federal excise tax rates for all brewers, America’s small brewers have an unparalleled opportunity to influence policy and strengthen their businesses. We need to build as much support as possible for this bill to give it the best chance of becoming a reality.
Please contact your U.S. Congressman and ask that he/she sign on as a co-sponsor of HR 836.
Money freed up by this tax reduction could be used by small brewers to hire more staff, invest in more equipment, and increase production, all of which would result in a net increase in government revenues. This is a Good Thing.
