capitalbuilding 120US Congressman Tom Reed highlighted a new bill designed to help American manufacturers succeed and expand in the United States.

"We care about helping our manufacturers create quality, family-sustaining jobs throughout Western New York, the Southern Tier and the Finger Lakes. Our manufacturers face many challenges and obstacles in a global economy. Unfair regulations which penalize them for keeping their businesses in America shouldn't be one of those difficulties. It just isn't right."

The American Manufacturing Competitiveness Act of 2016, which Reed will support later this week, would lower American manufacturers' costs to produce goods by nearly 1 billion dollars across the U.S. economy. "By lessening the manufacturers' tax burden, we are helping them compete and create jobs. They are once again able to make their products here, and sell them around the world," said Reed.

The bill will ultimately help American manufacturers get access to the raw materials that they need to produce their products in the United States.

As a member of the Ways and Means Committee, Reed worked in bipartisan fashion to advance bill through the committee.

"It's only right that we do everything we can to help our manufacturers succeed and keep the jobs right here at home. By passing this bill, we are helping them compete on a level playing field around the world," Reed concluded.
