Daines Wraps First Day of Tax Cuts and Brews Tour in Northwest Montana

BOZEMAN, Mont. – U.S. Senator Steve Daines today toured Northwest Montana to discuss the impact of tax cuts on businesses across the region. 

“This is what tax cuts are all about: more money in the pockets of hardworking Montanans,” said Daines. “It was great to see firsthand the impact tax cuts are having on Northwest Montana employees and small businesses.” 

Libby: Daines visited Cabinet Mountain Brewery where he saw the brewery’s newly purchased keg washer and heard about the raises given to the brewer and assistant brewer following the passage of the tax cuts bill. Tax cuts also allowed the brewery co-owners to take home paychecks for the first time since opening Cabinet Mountain Brewery.
