The American Manufacturing Competitiveness Act of 2012 (House Bill 5865), introduced by Congressmen Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) and Dan Lipinski (D-IL) would create a 15-person public-private board to provide recommendations to the president and Congress on manufacturing issues.
The board would consist of five members from the public sector appointed by the president, and ten from the private sector appointed by the House Senate.
