HR 3354 Spending Increase for the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (Roll Call 493)



The Torres (D-CA, 1.2% ACU LIFE) amendment to the Omnibus Appropriations bill increases spending for the Manufacturing Extension Partnership, a program that uses taxpayer funds and fees to act as a business consultant to American manufacturing companies. ACU opposes this wasteful program that has seen American manufacturing shrink by one-third since the program’s inception in 1988 and opposed this amendment. The House passed the amendment on September 13, 2017 by a vote of 279-137.
