Senator discussed his proposal to address the outsourcing of American jobs during tax reform discussion with President at the White House
U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly (D-IN) released the following statement after having dinner with President Trump along with other Republican and Democrat Senators last night.
Donnelly said, “I had another good conversation with President Trump about my proposal to address the outsourcing of American jobs. I am pleased he remains supportive of my proposal, and I believe that tax reform should include measures to support companies that invest in our workers and penalize companies that ship American jobs to foreign countries. I am hopeful we can work together to encourage domestic investments that benefit American workers.”
Donnelly introduced the End Outsourcing Act in January, and his legislation would support companies that invest in American workers and penalize corporations that outsource jobs.
In February, in a meeting at the White House, Donnelly discussed the End Outsourcing Act with President Trump and the President expressed his support for the proposal.
In May, at a Senate Banking Committee hearing, Donnelly asked Treasury Secretary Mnuchin about stopping outsourcing, and pushed for the President’s support for policies to protect American workers.
Donnelly met with Treasury Secretary Mnuchin in June to discuss the End Outsourcing Act.
