Sen. Casey to Chair House-Senate Economic Committee
U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) has been named Chairman of a House-Senate Joint Economic Committee (JEC). As chairman, Sen. Casey can focus attention on crucial issues related to jobs and the economy.
In a statement, Sen. Casey specifically mentioned the need to rebuild U.S. manufacturing:
"High on my agenda will be issues like promoting American manufacturing, workforce development, preparing children for the jobs of the future, export promotion, targeting unfair trade practices from countries like China and boosting working families."
Sen. Casey spoke at AAM's 2009 'Keep it Made in America' town hall meeting in Philadelphia. Since he's well aware of the need for a strong industrial base, AAM welcomes his chairmanship of the joint committee.
