H.R. 6727: United States Job Creation and Manufacturing Competitiveness Act of 2013
On January 1, 2013 Ways and Means Ranking Member Sander Levin (D-MI), Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI), Trade Subcommittee Ranking Member Jim McDermott (D-WA), and Trade Subcommittee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) introduced the “U.S. Job Creation and Manufacturing Competitiveness Act of 2013” (H.R. 6727). The bipartisan legislation provides temporary tax relief to help U.S. manufacturers better compete, expand, and create jobs. This broadly-supported legislation lowers the cost of manufacturing inputs and some finished products not made or available here in the United States.
