Bristol state lawmakers are applauding the passage of a new state law to better educate parents, guidance counselors, and students about careers in manufacturing, reported a press release from their offices.

State Sen. Henri Martin, Rep. Cara Pavalock, and Rep. Whit Betts co-sponsored the legislation, which aims to re-introduce the manufacturing industry to middle-school and high school students through a hands-on, authentic industry experience.

The bill, which was supported by the business community, aims to meet the needs of employers, create new middle class jobs in greater Bristol, and grow Connecticut’s economy, said the release.
