With Trump's victory, Nebraska businesses are ready for a new era

(Omaha World-Herald) -- reports that while "there might be bitter disagreement in some quarters about Tuesday's election outcome, but many Nebraska businesses and investors expressed optimism about a corporate America they expect to become unshackled from regulations, protected from foreign competition and unburdened from excessive taxes." One expert quoted in the story said that "Trump's win, in combination with a GOP-controlled Senate and House, could increase the chances for significant tax reform, tax rate cuts and tax-code simplification." Companies involved in infrastructure -- such as Lindsay, Valmont and Behlen Manufacturing -- could get a significant boost, the story notes.
