U-M representatives visited Washington D.C., last week to update House and Senate members and staffers in the Upper Midwest about ongoing work led by the university to assist communities hit hard by auto and related plant closings. The Community Economic Assistance Program — directed by the Institute for Research on Labor, Employment and the Economy (IRLEE) — conducts community workshops and provides other useful information to community leaders to help cities and towns deal with the impact of such plant closures. From left are Marian Krzyzowski, IRLEE director; Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Mich.; Larry Molnar, associate director for community and economic development programs at IRLEE; and Mike Waring, director of the U-M Washington Office.
