And also in Ohio...an Obama Administration manufacturing initiative
While GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan stumps for votes in Ohio today, acting U.S. Commerce Secretary Rebecca Blank joined several Obama Administration officials to announce the launch of a new public-private institute for manufacturing innovation in Youngstown, Ohio.
The initiative, the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute (NAMII), will award funding to manufacturing firms, universities, community colleges, and non-profit organizations for advances in "additive manufacturing," often referred to as 3D printing.
