Sen. Gregg Has 100 Percent NAM Voting Record on Key Manufacturing Issues

WASHINGTON, D.C., Feb. 3, 2009 - The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) today welcomed President Barack Obama's nomination of Senator Judd Gregg (R-NH) as Secretary of Commerce, calling Gregg a "champion of manufacturing who has consistently acted to strengthen U.S. competitiveness," according to NAM President and CEO John Engler.

"Sen. Gregg's 100 percent voting record with the NAM demonstrates that he has a true understanding of manufacturing's key role in the strength of the American economy and how to keep U.S. manufacturing globally competitive," said Engler.

"The Secretary of Commerce is critical to U.S. manufacturing with respect to international trade and innovation," Engler noted. He said the Commerce Secretary works to open global markets, ensure compliance with U.S. trade agreements and trade laws, promote U.S. exports, foster America's innovative leadership by protecting intellectual property and promoting technology, and implement the Executive Branch's Manufacturing Initiative.

"All signs point to Sen. Gregg providing strong leadership in shaping the competitive environment for American manufacturers and their employees," Engler continued.

"President Obama's choice of Sen. Gregg to lead the Department of Commerce reflects his continuing determination to assemble a highly-qualified, bipartisan team of Cabinet leaders who can meet the extraordinary challenges that we face as a nation," he said.

"The NAM looks forward to working with the new Secretary of Commerce and his team to improve the competitive landscape for U.S. manufacturers and their workers," Engler concluded.
