Last week one of our members, the Rodon Group, hosted Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick for a press conference discussing the new bill – The Made in America Act of 2013. The bill will create the American Star Program which will raise consumer awareness of American made products.
“Similar to the Energy Star Program, this voluntary labeling program has several goals. First, the new labeling would provide consumers an easy way to identify American made products. Second, manufacturers would be encouraged to meet certain American manufacturing benchmarks, showing the percentage of the product made in the U.S.A.” (Paula Hynes).
This bill could have a huge impact on our economy and perhaps change the way Americans shop.
We are very proud to have Rodon Group as an American Made Matters member, and congratulate them on hosting Congressmen Mike Fitzpatrick. To read the whole article, click here:
