WASHINGTON—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) today issued the following statement after signing H.R. 4923, the American Manufacturing Competitiveness Act

“This is a jobs bill and a reform bill. It will make sure that our small manufacturers have better access to the tax relief they need. It will make sure the system works better by having an independent board review requests before they go to Congress. So it’s less politics, more transparency, and more jobs too. It is a win across the board for our manufacturers. I want to thank the members of the House and the Senate who came together to get this done, and I’m proud to send it on to the president’s desk.”
