Congressman Mark S. Critz (PA-12) announced today at an event with U.S. Steelworkers in Johnstown that he has cosponsored legislation to grant businesses a tax credit for insourcing expenses incurred for eliminating a business located outside the United States and relocating it within the United States. The Bring Jobs Home Act, H.R. 5542, requires an increase in the taxpayer's employment of full-time employees in the United States in order to claim the tax credit for insourcing expenses.
"In the past decade alone, the United States lost 5.5 million manufacturing jobs, including over 200,000 manufacturing jobs in Pennsylvania," said Congressman Critz. "American workers are the best in the world, and we must enact legislation like The Bring Jobs Home Act, that incentivizes businesses to bring jobs back home."
Congressman Critz is an active member of the Democratic Whip's Make It In America Task Force; whose plan is to help revitalize American industry and innovation, create jobs and grow the economy by restoring our manufacturing industry and cultivating an environment for more businesses to make products here in the U.S. The agenda is based on the conviction that when more products are made in America, more families will be able to make it in America.
