This week, the Senate is debating legislation to make it easier for companies who outsource jobs to move them back to the United States. In my office, we are acutely aware of manufacturing’s impact on Wisconsin’s economy and are focused on the importance of creating and retaining American jobs. It is absolutely essential that we support our manufacturers and give them the opportunity to grow and prosper in America.
During my time in the Senate, I have strongly supported and worked with a program called the Manufacturing Extension Partnership. I’ve seen first-hand how they successfully assist and grow many small and medium manufacturing businesses. I discussed this tremendous public private partnership in greater detail when I addressed the Senate today during consideration of S. 3364, the Bring Jobs Home Act:
We all know the importance of jobs to individual families, communities, and to our economy as a whole. I will continue to do everything I can to keep American jobs here in America.
