MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis. (AP) — House Speaker Paul Ryan is talking tax reform with Harley-Davidson company officials at factory outside of Milwaukee.
Ryan toured the factory in Menomonee Falls on Monday and then held a round table discussion with company leaders. Ryan says he wants to talk with company officials about how his plans can help Harley-Davidson.
Ryan’s office says he plans to discuss issues affecting American manufacturing, including tax reform and free trade. Engines and transmissions for Harley motorcycles are made at the 900,000-sqaure-foot factory that employs about 1,000 people.
Republicans are determined to overhaul the nation’s tax code after more than three decades, delivering on a top legislative priority for President Donald Trump.
Ryan has been out front making the pitch to modernize the tax code for the first time since 1986.
