"For too long Hoosier manufacturers have been at a disadvantage as they compete against their global competitors. Today's bill helps level that playing field for businesses by lowering costs for materials American businesses need to produce their goods which will help restore American manufacturing and promote competitiveness, innovation and exports," Said Brad Ellsworth.

"Hoosier businesses all across the state say this bill will stimulate the Indiana economy and create an environment for them to start hiring workers."
