|Subject:||Made in Pennsylvania: Reshore to Restore Recovery Zone Program|
|Please join me in co-sponsoring legislation to establish the “Reshore to Restore Recovery Zone Program.” This program will help set the stage for bringing advanced industrial and manufacturing jobs back to Pennsylvania.
This legislation would allow the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) to designate strategic and targeted zones within the Commonwealth for incentives to be used as the base of operations for manufacturing in the advanced manufacturing, medical supply, life sciences, food supply chain, robotics, information technology or automation, and cargo operations industries.
An early lesson of the COVID-19 pandemic was that critical supplies need to once again be “made in America.” Our dependence on foreign manufacturing is not only a devastating loss to our workers, but is also, as we can now see, a serious national security risk. We must leverage the plentiful natural resources Pennsylvania enjoys and facilitate generational family sustaining jobs that will ensure the security of Pennsylvanians at the same time.
I look forward to working with you on this proposal, which is part of the Commonwealth’s COVID Comeback legislative package.
Introduced as HB600
