On Manufacturing Day, state Rep. Perry Warren announced the introduction of his Made in PA bill to make it easier for consumers to support and purchase goods manufactured in Pennsylvania through the creation of a Made in PA logo and a publicly searchable website for consumers to find Pennsylvania products.
“Manufacturing is critical to the Pennsylvania economy,” Warren said. “Pennsylvanians want to support Pennsylvania companies and their friends, family and neighbors who work for them. This bill would help promote these businesses that employ more than 500,000 residents in manufacturing products and provide jobs and goods right here in Pennsylvania.”
House Bill 1930 would create a Made in PA program through the Department of Community and Economic Development. It would create a publicly searchable website to find goods manufactured in the state, and it would feature a business component to connect manufacturers with Pennsylvania suppliers.
The bill would complement the successful PA Preferred program, which helps Pennsylvania residents easily identify and purchase locally grown and processed agricultural products.
