“Ways and Means Chairman Levin has been working on a compact package, which will deal with jobs and is paid for by the offshoring of jobs loopholes,” Hoyer said, adding, “We don’t think that’s good policy.”

Hoyer said the new bill will be part of the “Make it in America” agenda, a strategy that seeks to bolster the country’s manufacturing sector.
