Manchin Introduces the Jobs Score Act

Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) introduced the Jobs Score Act today, according to a press release from his office.

His bill would require the “Congressional Budget Office (CBO) to determine the number of jobs that would be created, protected, or lost should a specific piece of legislation become law – so lawmakers can take jobs into account as their top priority.”

The release notes that the “government already requires that bills be ‘scored’ for the amount of money that each will cost.”
