NEW: Report Praises Cicilline Proposal to Establish Make it in America Block Grant
Tuesday, August 14, 2012
David Cicilline's Make It In America Block Grant Program has “great promise,” according to a new analysis from the Brookings Institution
The program also calls for the development of local Make It In American Partnership Boards. Providing advice to the local businesses, the public-private partnership aims to maintaining progress and aiding development.
The report suggests Cicilline’s plan could appeal to both parties if modified to work directly with existing programs like the Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership.
"David Cicilline's idea for the creation of a manufacturing-centered Block Grant Program is solid and deserves greater attention from political and policy communities," said John Hudak, a fellow in the Governance Studies Program at the Brookings Institution. "Ultimately the goal of this and many other proposals it to great jobs, grow economics and spur private section activity."
