Duckworth Meets with Illinois Manufacturers’ Association
[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – Today, U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) met with over two dozen members of the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association to discuss how the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the CHIPS and Science Act, the Inflation Reduction Act and other major federal legislation is helping bring a manufacturing boom to Illinois—creating good-paying local jobs, supercharging our science and tech sector and growing our economy. Duckworth also underscored her efforts to support our manufacturing workforce, including advancing affordable child care and paid family leave policies.
“As more federal dollars come into Illinois from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the CHIPS and Science Act and the Inflation Reduction Act, our state is ready to lead the way as a hub of trade, manufacturing and innovation,” said Duckworth. “It was nice to meet with members of the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association today to discuss investments we have made to support manufacturing workers and their families in Illinois. I look forward to continuing to work with leaders at all levels to help strengthen the economy, save money for working families and make sure Illinois can remain a competitive leader in trade and manufacturing.”
