K. David Andersson, President, IIUSA, was interviewed by KGMI on the “PM Bellingham Show” with Dillon Honcoop yesterday in anticipation of today’s event in Washington State with U.S. Representative Rick Larsen (WA-2nd) unveiling H.R. 2972 (Creating American Jobs with Foreign Capital Investment Act).
In case you don’t have time to listen, here are Mr. Andersson’s “need to know” quotes from the interview:
“This is a Program that has been around in its ‘pilot’ form since 1992. That is a long time for a ‘pilot’ program.”
“This Program is set to sunset in less than a year, and to his credit, Rep Larsen has recognized the benefit to our economy – especially at this time, when jobs are hard to come by…and has taken the initiative in the House of Representatives to make this Program permanent.”
“With a stroke of the pen, and cooperation of the Senate and White House, we could have this very important regional development tool as a permanent part of our economic development toolbox.”
“This Program operates at no cost to the U.S. taxpayer. That’s job creation without a single dime being spent by the taxpayer. Now that is something worth making permanent.”
