Washington, D.C. - National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Senior Vice President for Policy and Government Relations Aric Newhouse issued the following statement today after the House of Representatives passed the Restarting American Offshore Leasing Now Act (H.R. 1230):
"Today's bipartisan support for developing our domestic energy resources in the Outer Continental Shelf of the Gulf of Mexico and in Virginia is an important step to encourage manufacturing job growth and competitiveness.
