WASHINGTON –The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) awarded U.S. Senator John Boozman the NAM Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence based on his support of policies key to the manufacturing industry during the 113th Congress.
“Manufacturers in Arkansas and throughout the United States are making a comeback, creating jobs, making more products and making them better than ever before,” NAM Senior Vice President of Policy and Government Relations Aric Newhouse said. “However, manufacturers are often disproportionately impacted by decisions made by policymakers in Washington. The NAM is proud to stand with lawmakers like Sen. Boozman who understand what is at stake and seek to implement policies that will foster innovation, growth and competitiveness.”
“We need to create an economic environment that helps our manufacturing industry succeed. I am honored to receive this award for supporting legislation that will strengthen Arkansas manufacturers, encourage growth, global competitiveness, and create jobs here at home,” Boozman said.
Lawmakers voting in support of policies that enable American manufacturers to create jobs, compete in the global economy and improve living standards for manufacturing at least 70 percent of the time during the 113th Congress are eligible for the NAM Award.
NAM is the nation’s largest industrial trade association representing small and large manufacturers and nearly 12 million workers.
