U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon wrapped up his "Made in Oregon" manufacturing tour in Bend. The Senator traveled to Portland, Eugene and Medford in addition to Bend, to hear from manufacturing leaders about how to keep and grow those jobs here. “I did a series of visits. I went to AE Solar, Deschutes Brewery and held a round table with five to 6 other groups. Really, each company has its own story. But the issues that came up are work force, education, healthcare and access to capital.” Senator Merkley plans to compile a list of the findings from the four roundtables. He promises to look for ways in which the federal government can help grow manufacturing jobs.
