Murphy for Manufacturing

Here's Congressman Chris Murphy, talking with the business crowd this morning at Marinelli's Supper Club in Burlington. Murphy, a Democrat who lives in Cheshire, represents Burlington, Plainville, New Britain, Waterbury and a bunch of other towns.
This morning, he was talking about his key priorities in Washington, which are to help preserve manufacturing jobs. He's got a couple pieces of legislation he hopes will help. One is a new version of the Buy American Act that he says will eliminate some of the loopholes that are bad for American manufacturers and the other is the American Jobs Matter Act, which would allow the government to consider the impact on American jobs when awarding a contract.
Murphy visited as a guest of the Central Connecticut Chambers of Commerce, and was the speaker for the chamber's regular "eggs and issues" breakfast gathering. I wrote about what he had to say for The Bristol Press, so hopefully you can see it here:
