Former State Senator and current President of the Technology & Manufacturing Association (TMA), Steve Rauschenberger, joined Dan & Amy to discuss the state of manufacturing, particularly for small to mid-size manufacturers, in Illinois. Rauschenberger discussed the TMA's recently released scorecard which finds a majority of state legislators with anti-manufacturing voting records. Rauschenberger discussed where policy changes are required to improve the cost of doing business in Illinois.
