thank you to President Obama. A couple of nights ago at the State of
the Union, he mentioned Youngstown, Ohio, and the National Additive
Manufacturing Innovation Institute that is a partnership between the
Departments of Commerce, Energy, Defense, and private partnerships up
to about $70 million to advance additive manufacturing innovation in
the military and energy and health care that will transform and
I wanted to rise this morning to also say thank you to all of our partners in the Tech Belt, which ranges from Cleveland to Akron to Youngstown, to Pittsburgh, all the way down into West Virginia. The old Rust Belt has made a comeback, and we are on our way, as we did many, many years ago, to revolutionize manufacturing again.
This will lead to great opportunities for our young people to come back, institutions like Case Western Reserve, Carnegie Mellon, Youngstown State, University of Akron, Lehigh, Penn State, West Virginia University, all coming together, working as a team. And we now have landed this institute, and we will once again be the hub of manufacturing.
Thank you, President Obama, and thank you to all of the men and women who have helped put this thing together.
