Thank you for your interest in the Economy, Business and Jobs Caucus.

Born from an interest to grow jobs and strengthen Pennsylvania’s economy, the Economy, Business and Jobs Caucus examines ways to break down barriers that hinder economic expansion within the Commonwealth. Only with a better understanding of what shapes our economic climate, encourages investment and which factors enable continued workforce development, can Pennsylvania unlock its true economic potential.

Our goal is to bring more good-paying, family-sustaining jobs to Pennsylvania, while keeping the jobs we already have.

Interest in the Caucus continues to grow with each new meeting. We encourage you to join the discussion.

Sincerely,

Senator Bob Mensch and Senator Lisa Boscola
