Clinton To Announce $7 Billion Jobs Plan

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Hillary Rodham Clinton is proposing seven billion dollars a year in tax incentives to encourage U.S. companies not to ship jobs overseas.

At a campaign-organized economic summit in Pittsburgh today, the former first lady is expected to propose the elimination of tax breaks for companies that move jobs to other countries.

Clinton will propose using the savings to persuade companies to "insource" jobs in the U.S.

Clinton has focused on job creation and challenges to the U.S. economy at campaign appearances across Pennsylvania, which holds its primary on April 22nd.

Barack Obama has also stressed economic development in recent weeks.
