Today, the office of Congressman Patrick McHenry announced that the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) presented the Congressman with its Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence. NAM is the nation’s largest industrial trade association representing small and large manufacturers in every industrial sector.
According to NAM, Congressman McHenry’s voting record in the 110th Congress demonstrates consistent support for a “pro-growth, pro-jobs agenda.”
“Your favorable votes on manufacturing issues helped advance the effort to maintain U.S. leadership in the global economy, reduce excessive production costs, develop at 21st century workforce, revitalize our nation’s infrastructure and promote innovation, investment and productivity,” wrote Daniel Steen, Chairman of NAM’s Key Vote Advisory Committee.
“In Western North Carolina, we confront no more serious challenge than rebuilding our economy and creating good jobs. To achieve the goal of economic security, we must create a business environment that helps our local manufacturers prosper and grow,” said Congressman McHenry.
NOTE: Congressman McHenry earned the National Association of Manufacturers’ Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence in the 109th Congress as well.
