TITLE <>  VII--REVITALIZE AMERICAN MANUFACTURING AND INNOVATION ACT OF
2014
SEC. 701. <>  SHORT TITLE.

This title may be cited as the ``Revitalize American Manufacturing
and Innovation Act of 2014''.
SEC. 702. <>  FINDINGS.

Congress finds the following:
(1) In 2012, manufacturers contributed $2.03 trillion to the
economy, or \1/8\ of United States Gross Domestic Product.
(2) For every $1.00 spent in manufacturing, another $1.32 is
added to the economy, the highest multiplier effect of any
economic sector.
(3) Manufacturing supports an estimated 17,400,000 jobs in
the United States--about 1 in 6 private-sector jobs. More than
12,000,000 Americans (or 9 percent of the workforce) are
employed directly in manufacturing.
(4) In 2012, the average manufacturing worker in the United
States earned $77,505 annually, including pay and benefits. The
average worker in all industries earned $62,063.
(5) Taken alone, manufacturing in the United States would be
the 8th largest economy in the world.

[[Page 2221]]

(6) Manufacturers in the United States perform two-thirds of
all private-sector research and development in the United
States, driving more innovation than any other sector.
SEC. 703. ESTABLISHMENT OF NETWORK FOR MANUFACTURING INNOVATION.
