WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep Debbie Dingell (D-Dearborn) was selected to co-lead a new task force focused on crafting legislation to help middle-class citizens. Dingell’s political career has focused on the manufacturing-based economy in Michigan and will continue those efforts on the board.
“Today, every industry — from autos and manufacturing to health care and renewable energy — is changing at a rapid pace,” Dingell said. “The new economy presents challenges and opportunities, and it is critical that Congress focus on policies that will support the American worker. I look forward to working collaboratively with my colleagues, business, labor and academia to ensure we are making the right investments in America’s workforce today.”
The task force has five sub sections within itself: Rebuilding America, Jobs With Dignity, Access to Jobs, New Economy and Reinvesting in Our Returning Heroes.
“How do we craft policies that support advanced manufacturing and keep jobs in this country, keep the U.S. at forefront of innovation and technology, level the playing field on trade, improve job training and support businesses that train and hire new workers?” Dingell asked. “These policies are critical for creating good jobs and opportunity for all Americans, and are among my top priorities.”
