Record Based on Support for Pro-Manufacturing Agenda

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) today released its 111th congressional Voting Record on manufacturing issues. The Voting Record reflects each legislator's votes on and support for a pro-manufacturing agenda. Members of Congress who consistently supported the manufacturing community during the 111th Congress (2009-2010) and maintained a voting record of 70 percent or higher will receive the NAM Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence. This year, 221 members of Congress will be honored for their voting record.

"The Award demonstrates lawmakers' true understanding of manufacturing's key role in our economy and their willingness to cast the critical votes that will boost competitiveness, job creation and prosperity for manufacturers," said NAM President and CEO John Engler. "The United States remains the world's largest manufacturing economy, but manufacturing's leadership is under fire, facing its toughest competition in the nation's history. It is critical that our policymakers understand what is at stake and seek to implement policies that will foster innovation, growth and competitiveness."

Each vote was selected by small, medium and large manufacturing executives who serve on the NAM's Key Vote Advisory Committee.

Recently, the NAM released its "Manufacturing Strategy for Jobs and a Competitive America," which lays out a comprehensive plan for supporting jobs and a manufacturing economy. The NAM is asking all members of Congress to publicly endorse the Strategy. You can view the Strategy by visiting www.nam.org.

"The NAM looks forward to continuing to work with all members of Congress who share our support for manufacturing," said Engler.

Voting records for all members of Congress are available at www.nam.org/111thCongress along with further details about the NAM's Key Manufacturing Votes. The NAM is non-partisan, does not have a political action committee and does not endorse candidates.
