Congressmen Lipinski, Manzullo Host Small Business Field Hearing on

Saving American Manufacturing Jobs

CHICAGO, IL - U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski (IL-03) will host a Hearing of the House Committee on Small Business Monday, September 19, in suburban Chicago to hear testimony regarding "Saving American Manufacturing Jobs." U.S. Rep. Don Manzullo (R-IL), Chairman of the Small Business Committee, will co-host the event with Rep. Lipinski, who is the Ranking Member on the Workforce, Empowerment, and Government Programs Subcommittee of the Small Business Committee.

"America's manufacturing base has eroded substantially in recent years, and this has hit families in the Third District and all of the Chicago area especially hard. I believe we in Congress must take the lead in reversing this trend," Congressman Lipinski said. "That is why Chairman Manzullo and I want to hear directly from business, labor, and governmental leaders trying diligently to preserve our industrial economy."

The Hearing will start at 10 a.m. at the Archer American Wire plant at 7300 S. Narragansett Ave., in Bedford Park. The public is invited.

"This event is a unique opportunity to discuss the decline in U.S. manufacturing in a setting where the issue matters most - a small manufacturing plant in America's heartland," Congressman Lipinski said. "I thank Chairman Manzullo for agreeing to bring this hearing to the Third District."
