Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Lloyd Doggett (D-TX) and Senators Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) and Dick Durbin (D-IL), joined by Senators Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Jack Reed (D-RI) and over 100 House members, introduced the No Tax Breaks for Outsourcing Act.
