KALISPELL – Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) made a stop at a Kalispell business on Tuesday touting the impact of recently passed tax-cut laws.
Best Buy was one of the many big companies that passed some of their tax savings onto employees after cuts were approved.
Sen. Daines voted in the bill’s support and helped champion the Senate Tax Cuts and Job Act. The visit is the first stop of a four-day tour for Sen. Daines, who will visit 17 counties across the state.
Sen. Daines says that Best Buy’s three Montana locations employ over 200 Montanans, making them a great example of the new tax regulation’s success in the state.
“This store right here in Kalispell employs more than 50 people. And to think that 50 people here are seeing bonuses, $500-to-$1,000 in their paychecks because of the tax-cuts bill is starting to translate what is happening in Washington D.C. to what’s happening on the ground here in Montana,” Sen. Daines said.
Sen. Daines will also stop at Thompson River Lumber in Thompson Falls and Cabinet Mountain Brewing in Libby.
