ROGERS, AR- U.S. Senator Mark Pryor took his jobs tours to Rogers, where he discussed his American-Made Strong jobs legislation to help create good-paying jobs and a path to economic growth and opportunity for Arkansas families. Pryor was joined by Mel Redman, Chairman and CEO of Redman & Associates; Becky Thompson, Deputy Director, Global Business of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission; Chris Neeley, Executive Vice President, Global Business Development of Made in the USA Consulting; and Keith Scheffler, President of Creative Things, Inc.
“Arkansas is a manufacturing powerhouse. Yet, we’re seeing too many jobs shipped overseas. It’s time to bring jobs back home,” Pryor said, “My ‘American-Made Strong’ jobs legislation will end the outrageous tax giveaways for companies that ship jobs overseas and instead provide incentives to bring good-paying jobs back to the U.S. It will require infrastructure to be built with American-made products so we keep America working. And it will make it easier for businesses to produce and consumers to buy quality products made right here in the USA.”
