"Made in Georgia" becomes law

May 20, 2008

Valdosta - Georgia manufacturers will soon get a little extra publicity.

Senator Tim Golden is celebrating the fact that his "Made in Georgia" program was signed into law.

It means a "Made in Georgia" logo will be stamped on all products manufactured in the state.

Golden hopes the program will promote the sale of Georgia products and raise awareness of the importance manufacturers have on Georgia's economy. 

"Manufacturing, a lot of people don't realize it's 20, 30, 40 percent of the local economy and they are good paying jobs. Anything we can do to highlight and educate people to the benefits of manufacturing and what it means on our lives, it's just a boom for us," says State Senator Tim Golden.

The Department of Economic Development will now create the logo.

Golden hopes to see it on Georgia made products as soon as possible.
