U.S. Congressman Marlin Stutzman spoke on the House floor today in support of H.R. 4795 the Promoting New Manufacturing Act. The following remarks are as prepared for delivery.
“Mr. Speaker, I rise today in strong support of the Promoting New Manufacturing Act.
“Mr. Speaker, for too long the Obama economy has remained weak and the American worker has suffered the consequences. Too many people are struggling to find work and provide for their families. They want to know when things are finally going to pick up.
“We in Congress have a responsibility to help create an economic environment that allows individuals to succeed and businesses to grow. And we can achieve that kind of success by cutting back on job killing regulations, removing bureaucratic red tape, and increasing transparency. That is what today’s bill is all about.
“As a representative from Indiana, I understand that a strong manufacturing industry is absolutely crucial to our national and local economy. The third congressional district, the place that I call home, is one of the top manufacturing districts in the entire Congress. This bill will not only bring new opportunities to Hoosier families, but to families all across America.
“Strengthening our manufacturing industry should not be a partisan issue. And today, we have an opportunity to stand together and support legislation that will help create jobs and move our economy in the right direction.
“I would like to thank Whip Scalise, Chairman Upton, and the members of the Committee on Energy and Commerce for their hard work on this issue, and I urge my colleagues to support this bill. Thank you.”
