Senator Baldwin introduces legislation to help manufacturers

Some new legislation introduced by Senator Tammy Baldwin may help manufacturers in Door County. The Small Shipyard Grant Program is designed to help small shipyards across Wisconsin get federal funding to rebuild, repair, and purchase new equipment. But there is a loophole that allows the grant funding to be used to purchase commercially-available products manufactured outside the United States. Senator Baldwin says the legislation is designed to close that loophole.



Baldwin mentioned Sturgeon Bay-based Marine Travelift as an example of a company that would benefit from the legislation. Marine Travelift employs nearly 200 workers and uses materials sourced locally in Wisconsin to produce boat handling equipment.
