    Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Connecticut, left, and Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Connecticut, center, are backing legislation that would encourage American companies to bring their overseas jobs back to the U.S.

    Both of Connecticut's senators are calling on Congress to end tax benefits for shipping jobs overseas.

    U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Connecticut) and Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Connecticut) visit Hartford Monday morning to promote a bill that seeks to create American jobs and strengthen the United States economy.

    The legislation would provide a tax credit for companies that move jobs and business activities from others countries back to the U.S.
