A Hearing on Manufacturing with Secretary Locke, Rep. Hoyer

By March 1, 2011Economy, Trade

The Senate Commerce Committee holds a hearing at 10 a.m. Wednesday, “The Future of American Manufacturing: Maintaining America’s Competitive Edge.”

Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD), the House Democratic whip, makes opening remarks. As majority leader last session, Rep. Hoyer was in charge of the “Make it in America” agenda, which included divers manufacturing-related bills.

The sole witness listed so far is Commerce Secretary Gary Locke.

We hope they both take the opportunity to address the pending free trade agreements with Korea, Panama and Colombia.
