House Committee holds hearing on U.S. manufacturing competitiveness
This past Friday, the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade held a legislative hearing on the American Manufacturing Competitiveness Act, H.R. 5865. The bipartisan measure would require a public-private Board to develop a national manufacturing competitiveness strategy on a quadrennial basis.
H.R. 5865 is a revised version of the National Manufacturing Strategy Act, H.R. 1366, that passed the House by a vote of 379-38 during the 110th Congress.
A national poll by the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) found that 78% of Americans support a national manufacturing strategy.
