As our country continues to grapple with the effects of globalization and automation and the challenges of the 21st Century economy, putting people back to work continues to be my number one priority as a member of Congress. We need fundamental changes that result in innovative, broad-reaching legislation that will grow the economy, give our children the skills they need to succeed in the future, reward businesses that keep jobs in the United States, create a level playing field for American workers in the global market.

There is no doubt we must do more to help educate the next generation for careers in this changing economy. Science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education helps drive our nation’s economic train and ensures our children will be prepared to lead the world in innovation and entrepreneurship.

The clean energy economy is growing in every Midwestern state, and smart government investment in clean energy can help grow it even faster. To learn more, click here:
