BOTH SIDES NOW


Congresswoman Haley Stevens (D-Birmingham, Bloomfield Township, Bloomfield Hills, most of Oakland County) has long emphasized her focus on manufacturing and her former position as chief of staff of President Barack Obama’s Auto Task Force, returning to the district to hold her signature “Manufacturing Mondays.” She’s very proud to have recently been placed on the Congressional Select Committee on Competitiveness on China, with its focus on industrialization. “It’s not a permanent committee. It’s a bright light of this session,” Stevens said, noting they could come up with solutions and ideas that could – and will – “have a great impact with a complicated country. China is more advanced than Russia, and we’re more entangled with China in manufacturing. There are definitely areas where the Community Party has not been fair with us, but what I’ve heard from all sectors of our manufacturing base it to ‘lower the rhetoric. We’re entangled.’” She emphasized that with the narrow Republican majority in the House of Representatives and strong partisanship, “it pushes us towards collaboration.” When we spoke, she was looking forward to joining Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and a bipartisan group of lawmakers traveling to Simi Valley to meet Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen. “I’m going in with open eyes. I’m going to see what the Taiwanese president has to say,” Stevens said, noting that there is a Taiwan Chamber of Commerce in West Bloomfield. “Because of the supply chain, it’s an important relationship for us.”
