According to Gray’s vice president of marketing and communications Jill Wilson, each issue of the GrayWay strives to deliver timely and insightful news that will be helpful to its audience. The May issue focused on developments in federal manufacturing policies and how these might affect the business of manufacturing. Wilson says the company could think of no better person to comment on this subject than Mr. Katz.

“In an election year, we felt our readers would be highly interested in the attention that is being given to federal manufacturing policies,” said Wilson. “There is likely no other leader on Capitol Hill more informed on this subject than Bruce Katz.”

As head of the Brookings Metropolitan Policy Program, Katz regularly advises federal, state, regional and municipal leaders on policy reforms that advance the competitiveness of metropolitan areas. He counsels on shifting demographic and market trends as well as on policies that are critical to metropolitan prosperity (e.g. innovation, human capital, infrastructure, housing) and new forms of metropolitan governance. After the 2008 presidential election, Bruce co-led the housing and urban transition team for the Obama administration and served as a senior advisor to new Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Secretary Shaun Donovan, for the first 100 days of the Administration.

In addition to Katz, this GrayWay features tax reform recommendations from Senior Director of Tax Policy for the National Association of Manufacturers Carolyn Lee and comments from Douglas Woods, president of the Association For Manufacturing Technology, about how the U.S. can increase the numbers of science, technology, engineering and math professionals in its workforce.
