Washington, D.C. – Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-5) delivered a speech today on the role of manufacturing in building a strong and competitive economy. He also announced a new list of bills as part of the Democrats’ Make It In America plan, which combines business tax reforms with strategic investments in education, technology and infrastructure to enable manufacturers to expand operations and add jobs. Ultimately, the goal of Make It In America is to maintain the United States’ economy as the strongest in the world.

On Friday, July 6, the Baltimore Business Journal ran an article on the Sparrows Point Partnership, manufacturing and the port.
I am a member of the Sparrows Point Partnership, appointed by Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. The partnership is led by RMI Board member and Baltimore County Economic Director, Dan Gundersen. ( see earlier post on Sparrows Point Partnership for membership list) We had our first meeting and I am confident that this group will produce a well researched, thoughtful and significant plan.
