"Made in Georgia" closer to approval

February 13, 2008

Valdosta - State Senator Tim Golden's "Made in Georgia" campaign is now one step closer to approval and has picked up some major endorsements.

Golden introduced the "Made in Georgia" campaign, which would stamp that logo on all products made in the state.

He hopes it will help boost sales of products manufactured in the state as well as promote awareness of the importance the manufacturing industry plays in Georgia's economy.

The bill just picked up an endorsement from the National Federation of Independent Business, which lobbies for 12,000 small businesses in the state.

The bill also was unanimously approved by the Senate Economic Development Committee yesterday and now moves to the Senate Rules Committee for further action.
