Regional manufacturing activity slows in August

The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City’s regional manufacturing index, which measures business in a seven-state area that includes Kansas and the western third of Missouri, registered at 3 in August. That was down from 9 in July and 6 in June, the Kansas City Fed said. Still, August marked the eighth consecutive month of manufacturing expansion in the region, and corporate expectations for future growth remain positive.
