Members of the United Steelworkers of America presented Congresswoman Kaptur with a certificate of appreciation for co-sponsoring the Bring Home Jobs Act (H.R. 5542).

Sponsored by U.S. Rep. William Pascrell (D-New Jersey), the Act would cut taxes for U.S. companies that move jobs and business operations to America from another country and end tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas.

The Act was sponsored in the U.S. Senate by Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Michigan) and has the support of President Obama, who has urged Congress to pass it.

"I agree with my colleague, Congressman Pascrell, that we have to strengthen our manufacturing base in America," Congresswoman Kaptur said.

"We have to get back to making things in America--everything from cars and trucks to appliances, bridges and railroad tracks. That's what made us strong in the first place."

Congresswoman Kaptur met with Steelworkers representatives Chad Culbertson, Mark Lowry and Jason Miller.

Congresswoman Kaptur is one of 36 co-sponsors of the Bring Jobs Home Act.
