The American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) sent a letter commending House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) for his efforts to turn Congress’s focus to job creation and U.S. manufacturing and offering policy recommendations that Congress should enact in order to advance a national pro-manufacturing strategy and improve the nation’s economic security.
As the U.S. unemployment number continues to hover around 9.5 percent, AISI President and CEO Thomas J. Gibson emphasized in his letter that the nation must focus on strengthening U.S. manufacturing, creating jobs and establishing a level international playing field.
In his July 20 letter, Gibson focused on a series of suggestions as to what Congress can do “to help strengthen and grow U.S. manufacturing, create jobs and expedite the economic recovery,” including the following:
“These actions address the demand for manufacture goods, our ability to continue to produce them with world class performance and fair competition, and are the fastest and most effective steps to job growth and economic recovery,” Gibson said.
