PAWTUCKET, R.I. —
Cicilline is one of several sponsors of the “Make it In America Act,” which would award federal grants to small and medium-sized manufacturers for investments in job training and infrastructure. It’s one of the first bills he’s sponsored.
Nearly all of Rhode Island’s 1,800 manufacturing companies would be eligible for help through the legislation.
The freshman Democrat says bringing highly skilled manufacturing jobs back to the Ocean State is critical to Rhode Island’s economic recovery.
