Washington, D.C. – Congressman John Faso (R-Kinderhook) testified in front of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies in support of the Economic Development Administration’s Public Works and Economic Adjustment Assistance Programs.
“Over the next 10 years, roughly 3.5 million new manufacturing jobs will be created in the United States. Unfortunately, we are seeing a growing skills gap in manufacturing which poses a threat to America’s future competitiveness. The Economic Development Administration’s (EDA) assistance programs are critical to ensuring that we can continue to compete in a global marketplace. The Capital Region’s local industry and economy can greatly benefit from these programs which is why I testified in front of the subcommittee in support of funding for the EDA.”
