Lipinski Testifies Before Joint House-Senate Committee on Need to Strengthen American Manufacturing (July 12, 2011)
Congressman Dan Lipinski (IL-03) testified before the U.S. Congress Joint Economic Committee today on the need for a National Manufacturing Strategy and how better workforce education and training will help put more Americans to work in manufacturing. Congressman Lipinski’s testimony was part of the JEC’s on-going series of hearings on manufacturing in the United States.
“While some believe America can no longer compete in manufacturing, I say robust job creation can and must come from manufacturing – from what we think of as traditional manufacturing, such as Northstar Aerospace in Bedford Park, Illinois that makes parts for the Apache helicopter, to Advanced Diamond Technologies in Romeoville, Illinois that makes coatings for artificial heart valves,” Congressman Lipinski said in his testimony. “Manufacturing in all its forms is critical for America’s economic future and for our national defense.
