Fitzpatrick Speaks at Upper Perkiomen Valley Chamber of Commerce Meeting

                Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8) once again highlighted bipartisan proposals to help secure better jobs and more opportunity for Bucks and Montgomery county families Thursday while addressing the Upper Perkiomen Valley Chamber of Commerce.

                "Whether it's investing in the American worker, or investing in the American manufacturer, it's vital we support public-private participation, bipartisanship and continued commitment to creating better jobs and more opportunity," said Fitzpatrick. "I'm working, each day, in the capitol and in Montgomery County to help remove some of the obstacles, we've talked about today, while working to provide the tools that will drive the economic engine and get us where we want to be."    

                Fitzpatrick spoke at the chamber's Legislative Affairs Council breakfast held at the Globe Inn. In his remarks, Fitzpatrick highlighted his support for the recently signed into law bipartisan Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act that reforms federal job training programs as well advancing American-made standards for manufacturers and consumers.

                "By incentivizing manufacturers to meet certain 'Made in America' benchmarks for domestic production and providing consumers with reliable and easy to understand information, the Made in America Act can meet two valuable goals: reshoring American businesses and jobs by promoting American-made goods," said Fitzpatrick. "Ideas like these embody the 'radical middle' that I represent as your voice in Washington – a space where plans to support and advance the American economy and American families can thrive."

                "The Upper Perkiomen Valley Chamber appreciates Congressman Fitzpatrick's leadership on these key issues and looks forward to partnering on workforce development initiatives," said Luanne Stauffer, president of the Upper Perkiomen Valley Chamber.

                Also speaking at the event were Pennsylvania State Senator Bob Mensch (R-24) and State Representative Justin Simmons (R-131).
