Calls From D.C. Grow Louder: Boost America’s Industrial Base

More Congressional leaders are calling for investment in U.S. manufacturing as the COVID-19 emergency continues to expose the nation’s vulnerabilities.

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), chairman of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, wrote this week that failed policy choices has left America’s manufacturing base diminished, adding: “There is a clear need for a sweeping pro-American industrial policy.”

U.S. Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-Alabama), ranking member of the House Commerce, Justice and Science Appropriations Subcommittee, wrote a recent editorial saying it’s time to “move critical medical manufacturing back to America” by implementing “Buy America” requirements. 4/21/2020
