Pennsylvania's own Governor Rendell and PA representatives step forward to pursue solutions to stem the tide of outsourcing jobs that has proven not to concern the White House: "It is our hope to influence that practice and stop it (outsourcing) from happening," Rendell said at a news conference Thursday. Rendell, a Democrat, said he would rather give contractors credit on a point system during bidding if they guarantee the work will remain inside the country. The plan would not guarantee that no jobs are outsourced, but Rendell said he believes it would keep the percentage low. Democratic representatives Michael R. Veon and Michael P. McGeehan had proposed legislation that would prohibit the state from awarding contracts for services delivered outside the country. Both said they would draw up legislation to implement the governor's proposal.
