Would you like to sign onto this letter and show your support for the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP)? Deadline to sign is Sunday, April 2, 2017. (A copy of the letter and signatures collected will be sent to the Appropriations Committee on Monday, April 3, 2017).
Take Action: Contact Congress to Support MEP
Contact your elected officials and remind them that MEP continues to be a cost-effective, job-creating investment that boosts American manufacturing.
How Your Congressional Member Can Help
In the Appropriations process, House and Senate Appropriations Committee staff will look for respective member requests when developing their budgets. The best way to ensure level funding for the MEP program in FY18 is to have as many Representatives and Senators submit individual programmatic requests as possible.
Have Your Representative Sign the Dear Colleague Letter
Call and email your local Representatives and their staff requesting the Congressman sign onto the Dear Colleague Letter, being circulated by Congressmen Kelly (R-PA) and McGovern (D-MA) and Congresswoman Murphy (D-FL), and request $142.4 million for the MEP program in the FY18 CJS Appropriations bill. The letter will be sent to House CJS Appropriations Subcommittee Chairman John Culberson (R-TX) and Ranking Member Jose Serrano (D-NY).
