"Congressman Richmond understands the importance of a strong chemistry manufacturing sector to Louisiana by supporting policies that build a strong workforce through quality education and skills training. As representatives one of the nation's largest manufacturing sectors, we want to acknowledge Rep. Richmond's hard work and bipartisan leadership on key issues that help our economy thrive."
