Press Release

Washington, DC– This week, Congressmen Brendan F.  Boyle (D-PA) is proud to announce that his American Export Promotion Act (HR 2729) has been selected to be included in Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer’s “Make It In America” package of legislation to promote bottom-up economic growth in America.  The bill would help the export capabilities of small and medium sized businesses, allowing them to better compete in the global economy.

Whip Hoyer’s new Make It In America plan focuses on four areas of action:
-Expanding entrepreneurship and innovation
-Closing the skills gap
-Building a 21st century infrastructure
-Breaking down barriers to manufacturing.

“We should be laser focused on supporting cost-effective, job-creating programs like this legislation,” said Congressman Boyle.  “Our top priority must be creating American jobs and empowering U.S. manufacturers to access and compete in foreign markets.  I am proud of the manufacturing base in my district, and understand the challenges presented by global competition.”  Boyle continued, “We need to access growing consumer markets abroad in a way that also empowers American businesses and workers.  We need to do all we can to empower them in that fight.  This legislation does just that.”

Congressman Boyle’s American Export Promotion Act is one of 82 bills and ideas selected by Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer as the best examples of how Congress should address these important “Make It In America” action areas to strengthen our economy. To view the list of bills, click here.
