A new bipartisan bill introduced by Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) and Rep. Ro Khanna (D., Calif.) seeks to identify and resolve weaknesses in U.S. supply chains that could hurt national security and slow domestic manufacturing growth, The Wall Street Journal reports. The 18-page proposal, called the National Development Strategy and Coordination Act of 2022 aims to strengthen domestic manufacturing and reduce U.S. reliance on other countries while addressing both long term and immediate supply chain shortfalls.

No other lawmakers have signed onto the proposal, though many have voiced concerns over critical shortages and supply chain hurdles in years past and have called on Congress to respond.

“For decades, we watched as American industry went offshore, and we basically offered a Band-Aid to communities,” Mr. Khanna said in an interview. 

“If we want to be a strong nation, we have to rebuild and invest in critical industries at home,” Mr. Rubio said. He said the bill would create “the road map, using existing tools within our government, to focus on and invest in things that actually matter.”
