Bustos announces plans for district-wide economic summit

17th District Congresswoman Cheri Bustos is moving forward on her campaign priorities to help create jobs and reinvigorate the manufacturing base.

Bustos is holding three regional economic meetings in August followed by a district-wide economic summit this fall. The meetings and summit will bring together business and community leaders to discuss the best ways to create jobs and boost American manufacturing.

Bustos’ announcement comes after her week-long “Make it in America” tour. During that time, Bustos met with local workers and businesses to find out how Congress can help them remain successful. She says details on the regional economic meetings and the district-wide economic summit will be released in the coming weeks.
