    DeLauro Floats A Barge-Friendly “MRA”

    (7/6/2011) U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro and Sen. Richard Blumenthal came to Buchanan, at 80 Ferry St., Tuesday to describe it to company president Rick Jurczak. The alternative has an acronym: MRA, or Manufacturing Reinvestment Account.

    That’s a takeoff on “IRA.” The MRA would work a similar way for small businesses. The idea came from the New Haven Manufacturers Association, specifically Hugh McCann, president of Identification Products Corp. in Bridgeport, and Jamison Scott of Air Handling Systems in Woodbridge.

    Scott introduced the idea to DeLauro, who worked with Blumenthal after his election. The idea is now contained in House Resolution 110 and in Senate Bill 1237.
