American manufacturers are at the heart of our nation's economy, creating jobs, and making products here at home that are sold to consumers around the world. Ensuring that our Hoosier manufacturers continue to thrive and contribute to the growth of our neighborhoods, communities, and state is a top priority of mine in Congress. 

Excel Manufacturing, a manufacturing plant in Seymour, makes a wide range of car parts from cast iron, aluminum, steel, and bronze. This great Hoosier business celebrated 50 years in 2017. This week, I toured Excel to see first-hand its contribution to our Seymour economy and beyond.

This week in Congress, I voted in support of the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill (H.R. 4318) to provide greater support to our manufacturers and their workers by reducing costs so they can better compete and succeed. This bill:

  • Provides more than $1.1 billion of much-needed tariff relief to American manufacturers over the next three years.
  • Increases American manufacturing output by more than $3.1 billion over the next three years.
  • Encourages more manufacturing in the United States by leveling the playing field for American businesses to compete.

I'm committed every day to putting Hoosier businesses and manufacturers first.

Be of good cheer,

P.S. A bill I introduced, the Expanding Investment Opportunities Act, passed the House this week. It puts Main Street investors on a level playing field. By removing burdensome regulations, we are cutting costs and promoting job creation, as well as allowing for more investment options for small businesses, companies, and Hoosiers saving for retirement.
