Max Baucus (Chair, Senate Finance Committee) and Dave Camp (Chair, House Ways & Means Committee) kick off their Nationwide Tour for a Simpler, Fairer Code to Boost Economy, Create Jobs and Improve Wages in Minneapolis today with visits to 3M and Baldinger Bakery:
The 3M Company is an American multinational corporation based in Maplewood, Minnesota. With $30 billion in global sales, 3M employs 88,000 people worldwide and has operations in more than 70 countries.
Baldinger Bakery is a fourth generation, family-run businesses in St. Paul, Minnesota. Baldinger Bakery was founded in 1888 when Henry and Rebecca Baldinger left Eastern Europe and made their way to America, settling in St. Paul. Over the years they developed a following for their breads, rolls and buns. As their following expanded so did operations. Today, the commercial bakery is in a state-of-the-art facility that can produce about 65,000 buns per hour.
On their tax reform tour, the tax-writing Chairmen will be talking to a range of Americans and businesses – from large multinational corporations with overseas operations like 3M, to small, family-run businesses and individual taxpayers.
“Over the past two years we’ve heard from hundreds of experts on how to fix the tax code to make it simpler for families and spark a more prosperous economy. We want even more input and want to hear directly from the American people. That is why we are going around the country and starting off in St. Paul, meeting with leaders in business — big and small,” said Chairman Dave Camp and Chairman Max Baucus.
