Rep. Brett Guthrie, R-Bowling Green, is set to introduce a bill in the House of Representatives today that he said will help increase production and increase competitiveness for American manufacturers.

The REBUILD Act of 2013 is a multi-faceted approach, with elements including investing in training programs that will match up with skills needed by industry, expediting the process for comprehensive tax reform, expanding offshore oil and gas production and limiting action from the Environmental Protection Agency that would negatively impact the economy.

"It tells the story of American manufacturing," Guthrie said.

REBUILD stands for the Reducing Employer Burdens, Unleashing Innovation, and Labor Development Act.

It would also repeal the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, Guthrie said.

"Every business I go to tells me that they have to make decisions based on the health care law," he said.
