Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger is continuing his efforts to pass legislation meant to protect supply chains and manufacturing in the United States. The congressman spoke about it last week at the House Energy & and Commerce Committee.
Kinzinger says the legislation is meant to make the U.S. more resistant to global crisis, including the COVID-19 pandemic, by focusing more manufacturing in the U.S. or in allied, or nearby, countries.
Kinzinger acknowledges that it might not make business sense for every company to relocate in the U.S. and says his legislation addresses that.
Kinzinger says that Democratic proposals have threatened to derail the potential legislation.
Kinzinger has heard assurances from Democrats on the committee that the bipartisan talks would continue.
