Legislation to launch Made in California program
Submitted By Andrew LaMar
"I am committed to helping our economy grow and doing everything I can to generate jobs in California," Corbett said. "This program is a smart way to boost business for California companies and inform consumers about which products come from our state."
The program is similar to the "California Grown" program, which highlights agricultural products produced in the Golden State. The year after California Grown was launched a decade ago, sales of the state's agricultural products increased by 7 percent.
Made in California extends this successful statewide marketing strategy to all goods produced in California. The legislation, Senate Bill 12, will have its first legislative hearing set in January 2013.
Senator Corbett has worked to assist emerging industries that offer California's economy great promise, such as alternative energy generation and electric vehicle production. She also worked to create jobs and improve communities throughout the 10th Senate District and their business climates.
