Governor Robert Bentley and leaders of the Alabama Department of Commerce have unveiled a "Made in Alabama" logo that the governor says will be used to help tell Alabama's story to potential economic development clients. The governor showed off the "Made in Alabama" logo at a news conference on the state Capitol steps in Montgomery.
He says the logo's purpose is to ensure officials looking to establish a new business or expand an existing one know about Alabama. The governor said, "this is a campaign that will not only help us recruit new companies but also help build pride here in our state."
Bentley also released a report from the Alabama Department of Commerce showing that 38,000 new jobs had been created in Alabama since he took office.
