Tanner helps lead Bill to boost U.S. Manufacturing Jobs

 

Washington, DC. – U.S. Rep. John Tanner helped the House of Representatives overcome a partisan block to pass legislation boosting U.S. manufacturing jobs.

The bill was initially opposed by House Republican leaders but eventually passed the House overwhelmingly by a vote of 378-43.

“Passage of this bill is one more step toward economic recovery and private-sector job growth in America,” Tanner said. “Working families in America will be grateful that a substantial majority of Members of this House rose above political rhetoric to do the right thing to save and create jobs in Tennessee and across our country.” «Read the rest of this article»
