QOTD: Sen. Jack Reed on manufacturing jobs and national security

Posted by TGarland on 03/21/2014

The Alliance for American Manufacturing was joined last night by Senator Jack Reed (D-RI) for a discussion of manufacturing jobs and national security in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. Here's what he had to say:

Manufacturing plays a key role in our national security. Our state has a proud heritage of making everything from high-tech naval systems to weapons, clothing, and equipment used to identify threats and keep our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines safe from harm. And keeping our nation safe means boosting domestic manufacturing and ensuring the supplies, material, equipment and other systems our military relies on are produced here at home.
