Chicago gets new boon for manufacturing

President Obama is expected to announce on Tuesday the creation of a new digital manufacturing hub on Chicago’s Goose Island. Chicago will get a $70 million grant for UI Labs, which aims to make Chicago a research center and a magnet for start-ups. Illinois’ Senior Senator Dick Durbin was behind the push for the grant. He joins us to explain what this means, and how the new center will change the manufacturing landscape. Photo: Flickr/Center for American Progress Action Fund
