Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today after the House voted 378 to 43 to pass H.R. 4380, the U.S. Manufacturing Enhancement Act – part of Democrats’ national manufacturing strategy. This miscellaneous tariffs bill will help American manufacturers compete by temporarily suspending or reducing duties on materials these companies use that are made abroad or opposed by domestic producers:
“Today, the House voted for more jobs for our workers, a stronger economy for our manufacturers, and greater American competitiveness and innovation. In passing the U.S. Manufacturing Enhancement Act, we acted to level the playing field for U.S. firms, cut the cost of doing business, support tens of thousands of jobs, and boost our gross domestic product.
“Congress is committed to creating good-paying American jobs and helping lay the foundation for growth now and in the future. We want to restore the words ‘made in America’ to the center of our economic prosperity.
“I commend my colleagues – on both sides of the aisle – who voted on behalf of American manufacturers and set partisan politics aside to support our working families.”
