WASHINGTON, DC – Today, House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD), joined by several House Democratic colleagues, unveiled a major update to the Make It In America (MIIA) plan for jobs and opportunity.  First launched by Hoyer in 2010, the plan has brought together bipartisan policies and legislation aimed at promoting economic growth, the creation of jobs that won’t be outsourced, and building a competitive workforce that can access opportunities in today’s competitive global economy.  Updated in 2015 and 2018 to focus on the three core components of education, infrastructure, and entrepreneurship, twenty-one bipartisan Make It In America bills have now been enacted into law, including the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law in 2021.  Hoyer and his colleagues announced the inclusion of a new, fourth core pillar of the plan moving forward: supply chain resilience.  Joining Hoyer were: Reps. Sharice Davids (KS-03), Dean Phillips (MN-03), Greg Stanton (AZ-09), Susan Wild (PA-07), Debbie Dingell (MI-12), Lisa Blunt Rochester (DE-AL), Dan Kildee (MI-05), Frank Mrvan (IN-01), and John Garamendi (CA-03).

“Infrastructure is essential to our economic strength, and that’s why it’s at the heart of the Make It In America Plan. This Congress delivered a historic investment in resilient, green infrastructure to get people and goods moving again,” said Rep. Stanton. “Now as we face a hotter, drier climate in the West, there’s still much more to do to conserve and secure our water supply and protect the livelihoods of the more than 40 million Americans who rely on the Colorado River.”
