ANGIE CRAIG’S POSITION:  Representative Craig cosponsored the bill on 10/11/19.

STATUS: Introduced 6/12/19 by Rep. McKinley, David B. [R-WV-1].

INFORMATION RELATED TO THE BILL:

  • “Protecting and creating American jobs should be Congress’ top priority,” said Rep. McKinley.“Plain and simple, we should not be rewarding companies for moving jobs offshore. This bill does not mandate that companies keep call centers here in America, but simply says if you move call center jobs offshore, you don’t receive funding from the government. This should be common sense.” (Source: Rep. McKinley, Press Release, 06/12/19)
