KAM Joins Midwest Manufacturing Organizations in Requesting Reopening of State EconomiesKAM
Earlier this week, a newly-created Midwest manufacturing alliance comprised of the same seven states as the recently-announced Midwest governors’ partnership sent a letter to those governors asking for a healthy but timely reopening of state economies. Manufacturing is by far the largest component of Kentucky’s GDP according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis.
“Manufacturing has demonstrated that it can operate safely and provide critically needed products to support our nation’s economy. These companies offer good, high-paying jobs and make the products that will allow our residents and businesses to return to a sense of normalcy. We should collectively look to reopen all of manufacturing and other essential businesses to protect our regional economy.”
