Mr. LONG. We're a Nation of builders.
We all agree we need to get the Nation's economy growing again in order to create jobs. The manufacturing sector will play an integral role in creating jobs for hardworking Americans.
As a member of the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade, I look forward to working with my colleagues as we continue our hearing series focused on our Nation's manufacturing sector.
I enjoy highlighting the strong manufacturing base in the Seventh District of Missouri and showcasing the amazing work of businesses in the district.
I'm looking forward to our annual manufacturing tour next month and meeting with the hardworking, tireless Missourians who are the backbone of a strong manufacturing sector in the United States.
I remain hopeful that these opportunities will result in a growing manufacturing base and more jobs for southwest Missouri.
Our Nation needs a strong and robust manufacturing sector which will help create jobs and grow our Nation's economy. I will continue to support that effort and allow our Nation's manufacturing sector to prosper.
