Congresswoman Lawrence to Speak at “Make It In America: What’s Next?” Member Day Hearing

October 28, 2015
Press Release
Rep Lawrence to discuss skilled trades at "Make It In America: What's Next?" hearing

TODAY, October 28, 1 to 3 p.m.

Washington, DC Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence (MI-14) will join House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer and other House Democrats for the third “Make It In America: What’s Next?” hearing today, October 28, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.

In 2010, House Democrats launched the Make It In America plan to spur the creation of high-wage, private-sector jobs here in our country so that more workers and their families can secure a place in our middle class. Since then, sixteen Make It In America bills have been signed into law. However, five years after Make It In America first launched, our economy has significantly changed, and we are facing a different economic landscape. This series of hearings provides an opportunity for Members to explore new ideas and solicit feedback as we work to update the Make It In America plan for 2015 and beyond.

This will be the second “Member Day” hearing featuring House Democrats testifying about ways we can update the Make It In America jobs plan to ensure that it reflects the challenges and opportunities of today’s economy. Rep. Lawrence will explore what American families and businesses need in 2015 to Make It In America by appearing on the 2:30-2:45 p.m. panel and discussing the need to support skilled trades.
