Subject: Made in PA: Growing and Supporting Manufacturing Jobs
Every day, more than 570,000 Pennsylvanians go to work manufacturing products in this state, and millions more Pennsylvanians go to work moving, storing, and selling these products. We should do everything we can to support these workers and help grow additional manufacturing jobs, and an easy way to do that is to encourage Pennsylvanians to buy Pennsylvania-made products.

My legislation would make it easier for consumers to find and purchase Pennsylvania-made products by creating a Made in PA program at DCED. It would do so through marketing, use of a Made in PA logo, and a publicly-searchable website. It will also feature a business to business component that will help Pennsylvania manufacturers connect with Pennsylvania suppliers. The Made in PA program would complement – not replace - the successful Pennsylvania Preferred program.

Pennsylvanians want to support Pennsylvania companies and their friends, family, and neighbors who work for them. Buying Pennsylvania-made is the most direct way to do that. In the past, this bill has had bipartisan support and the support of both unions and employer groups. I ask that you please join me in co-sponsoring this legislation.
