Congressman Joe Donnelly was recently asked what he’s been hearing about the economic front.

“On the economic front, we are waiting on the report from the Super Committee which we’re hoping will be able to help us reduce the deficit, while at the same time, allowing us to continue to grow our economy,” commented Donnelly. “We saw that the jobless report shows the lowest number of jobless claims in seven months so it’s a step-by-step process, but we’re hoping that our economy gets stronger.”

Indiana’s industry is also picking up. Donnelly commented on Indiana’s commerce.

“In Indiana, we’ve continued to see our manufacturing grow and we are working on national policies such as fairly valuing the Chinese currency and if we do that, it’ll enable us to grow our manufacturing even more. Manufacturing is going to be a cornerstone in our economy; not only in our country but in our state.”
