WASHINGTON, D.C., - The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President John Engler issued the following statement today regarding the congressional hearings on the Toyota recalls:
Today was the first of two congressional hearings this week on the Toyota recalls. The NAM welcomes Congress' focus on this issue and believes these hearings can be helpful in clarifying the facts about the problems Toyota is facing and the corrective actions they are taking to eliminate the problems.
Toyota is an important company that has been creating good manufacturing jobs in the United States for more than 50 years. Across the nation, the company contracts with hundreds of suppliers, employs thousands of workers and contributes significantly to local economies. Thus, we think it is important that not only Congress but also the public give Toyota a fair hearing.
When there is a problem, U.S. manufacturers have a long history of stepping up and fixing it. We believe Toyota is committed to working with U.S. lawmakers and regulators to address and explain their recalls, ensure the safety of their vehicles and, most importantly, the safety of the driving public.
