Rep. Coffman Honored with Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence
(Washington, D.C.) The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) has awarded Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO) the NAM Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence. The award is based on his votes in the 113th Congress on issues that are critical to manufacturing in the United States.
“Manufacturers in Colorado and throughout the United States are making a comeback, creating jobs, making more products and making them better than ever before,” said NAM Senior Vice President of Policy and Government Relations Aric Newhouse. “However, manufacturers are often disproportionately impacted by decisions made by policymakers in Washington. The NAM is proud to stand with lawmakers like Rep. Coffman who understand what is at stake and seek to implement policies that will foster innovation, growth and competitiveness.”
The largest manufacturing association in the United States, NAM represents small and large manufacturers in every industrial sector and in all 50 states. Manufacturing employs nearly 12 million people and contributes more than $1.8 trillion annually to the U.S. economy.
“Manufacturing jobs are essential to ensuring economic growth benefits the middle class. I will continue fighting hard to lower the cost of energy and cut job-killing regulations to help bring manufacturing jobs back to Colorado,” said Coffman, a member of the Small Business Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Key Votes included in the Voting Record are selected by small, medium and large manufacturing executives who serve on the NAM’s Key Vote Advisory Committee. Additional information on the NAM Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence can be found here.
