For decades, Congressman John Garamendi has been a champion for creating jobs in Northern California and throughout the country. Garamendi believes Congress must invest in transportation, clean technology, education, and research; help Make It In America; responsibly pay down the deficit; and extend tax savings to hard working middle class families and small businesses.
Garamendi has also been one of Congress' lead advocates for a Make It In America agenda to bring back American manufacturing - the backbone of America's middle class. Garamendi is the author of two Make It In America bills that would create pathways to the middle class for thousands of hardworking Americans. They would:
- Create American jobs by requiring federal money be used to purchase American-made transportation equipment like trains and buses instead of foreign-produced equipment; and
- Create American jobs by requiring federal money be used to purchase American-made clean energy like solar panels and wind turbines instead of foreign-produced equipment.
