Freshman Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) says one of his top priorities in the Senate is advancing a “Make It in America” jobs agenda. Murphy, who founded the House “Buy American” Caucus, outlined that agenda in a conference call Wednesday sponsored by the Campaign for America’s Future (CAF) and the Alliance for American Manufacturing.  

Murphy calls for cracking down on China’s currency manipulation and violations of trade rules, tightening up “Buy America” federal contracting provisions and encouraging federal investments that would boost the manufacturing sector.

You can read more from CAF’s Isaiah J. Poole and from Matt Murray at the New Hampshire Labor News. You also can listen to audio of the call.
