SALEM, N.H. (AP) — The latest piece of Hillary Clinton's jobs agenda aims to boost American manufacturing jobs by offering tax incentives for new investment in communities suffering from factory closures and layoffs.

Her campaign hasn't released a total cost for the plan, but Clinton says she plans to pay for her jobs agenda by imposing higher taxes on the wealthy and closing corporate loopholes. She plans to propose an "exit tax" to crack down on U.S. companies shifting profits overseas to lower their tax bills.

Clinton is outlining her plan during a campaign stop in New Hampshire.

Clinton's jobs agenda, which she recently began rolling out, also includes plans to invest $275 billion to rebuild American roads, bridges and other infrastructure.
