We invite you to join the House Manufacturing Caucus, a group of legislators who seek to engage Congress around the issues facing US manufacturing.

also how it can be done. Combined with the intensely competitive global environment, the future of manufacturing and its role in the US is open for re-imagining. Almost 13 million people are employed in manufacturing production today with the vast majority
of those in small to medium size businesses. The manufacturing supply chain reaches far beyond factories serving as foundations for communities and spurring jobs in supporting areas as diverse as transportation, law, engineering, financial services, energy,
education, and more. Whether your district is interested in work force development, economic development, small businesses, national security, agriculture, science, technology, energy, environment, trade, or tax policy, understanding the role manufacturing
plays is important to your work.
The manufacturing caucus will offer briefings about the unique role that manufacturing plays in our economy, how it is changing, and bring the voice of the stakeholders to present their ideas, problems, and suggestions. The caucus is a forum for understanding
the interplay of our legislative issues and their impacts. More information, including links to manufacturing related policy reports and videos of past events, and plans for future events is available on the
House Manufacturing Caucus website. During the recess we have plans for a briefing from CRS on the impact of the transition to electric vehicles (4/17) on the automobile industry and a tour to
