Sens. Catherine Cortez Masto and Jacky Rosen, both D-Nev., and Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., have introduced legislation to create a new federal agency that would monitor and work to reduce supply chain disruptions that create shortages.
They said the Supply Chain Resiliency Act would work to prevent future disruptions by investing in American manufacturing companies, reducing reliance on foreign supplies and ensuring critical products are made in America.
Cortez Masto said the nation needs to focus on supporting businesses that make products in the U.S., not overseas.
Rosen said the bill will get supply chains back in operation, reducing bottlenecks and help bring down rising costs by investing in American manufacturing. Cortez Masto has already introduced legislation to promote a domestic critical mineral supply chain and expand domestic battery production.
Rosen last month introduced legislation to develop a network of domestic manufacturers of medical supplies.
They said this new legislation would create the office of Supply Chain Resiliency at the Commerce Department, providing loans and grants to small and medium sized manufacturers to help them expand production of goods in the U.S.
