Manufacturing & The Economy

Manufacturing Caucuses Formed in Both Chambers of Pennsylvania General Assembly

In May a bipartisan Pennsylvania Senate Manufacturing Caucus, chaired by Sen. Kim Ward (R) and Sen. Wayne Fontana (D), held its first meeting, bringing together manufacturers, legislators and experts to discuss ideas for boosting growth in the sector.

“In order to ensure Pennsylvania’s manufacturing sector remains viable and competitive, it must continue to promote an atmosphere that supports existing manufacturing sectors, while also promoting growth into new areas of manufacturing. I view this caucus as another tool in the ongoing effort to encourage and promote Pennsylvania manufacturing,” said Senator Ward.

Following this move in the Senate, Pennsylvania State Reps. John Galloway (D) and Eli Evankovich (R) formed a Manufacturing Caucus in the state house.

“Supporting manufacturing is the key to creating and maintaining family-supporting jobs in Pennsylvania,” said Galloway. “Manufacturing provides over half-a-million jobs and supports three times as many throughout the Commonwealth, and brings in hundreds of millions in tax revenue each year. It is in our best interest to help the industries grow.”
