I’m pleased to support Global Automakers’ Here for America educational initiative, which is so important in delivering the message of the tremendous impact the global automotive industry has on Alabama. The industry is vital to the state, not only in terms of economic development, but also for its value to our local communities.
I am grateful for the continued billion-dollar investment in Alabama by Honda, Hyundai, Mercedes-Benz, and Toyota. These companies, along with their suppliers, have contributed to building strong communities in their areas, as well as creating thousands of jobs for Alabama workers.
Automobiles are the leading export in Alabama, and we are proud of our thriving automotive industry. Here for America is a valuable resource in educating lawmakers and the public about the important contributions that are being made by the global automakers. We support the international automakers and recognize their impact on job creation, economic growth and strong communities across Alabama and America.
