U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines introduced the bipartisan “American Jobs in Energy Manufacturing Act” that would incentivize American manufacturing facilities to expand to energy producing communities that have suffered from economic turndown.

“This bipartisan bill will support Montana jobs and increase investment in coal and other energy producing communities in Montana. We must protect and grow Made in Montana and Made in America energy,” Daines said.

This bill will revive the Section 48C Advanced Energy Manufacturing Tax Credit by investing $8 billion in American manufacturing. $4 billion of the $8 billion will be set aside for communities where coal mines or power plants have closed. 

Senators Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) joined Daines in introducing this bill.
