SIIA Joins Major Coalition of Industry Organizations Advocating Hill Leadership on America COMPETES Act

Today, SIIA as part of a major coalition of manufacturing, business and other leading industry groups and trade sent a letter Tuesday to House and Senate leadership advocating for support of the America COMPETES Act. It said, in part:
