Dear Colleague:

For too long, our tax code has incentivized companies to outsource American jobs instead of investing in workers and communities here in the United States. We give corporations who ship American jobs overseas a free pass while workers suffer the consequences.
Instead of rewarding companies that relocate to other countries, we should use our tax code to incentivize firms to invest in our communities and to put workers back to work.

Please join me as an original cosponsor the End Outsourcing Act, a bill to fix our tax code and federal contracting requirements by rewarding companies investing in American workers and penalizing corporations that outsource domestic jobs and factories.

Specifically, the End Outsourcing Act:

  1. Prohibits companies from receiving tax breaks for outsourcing jobs and factories, and claws back tax credits and grants related to the operation and maintenance of a facility closing to relocate abroad.
  2. Establishes tax incentives for companies that relocate foreign jobs to rural and impoverished communities in the United States.
  3. Ensures that federal contracting policy takes into consideration whether companies have outsourced domestic jobs.

Please contact Evan Giesemann ( with any questions or if you would like to be an original cosponsor.
