WASHINGTON, DC - The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) announced U.S. Representative Dan Newhouse (R-WA) as a recipient of the NAM Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence.

“Manufacturers large and small provide economic growth and good-paying jobs right here in Central Washington,” said Representative Newhouse. “Entrepreneurs need the right tools to compete and sell their products in a global marketplace. I am grateful for this award, and I am proud to support policies that allow our manufacturers to succeed.”

“Manufacturing in Washington State and across the country are changing lives for the better—through the jobs we create and the products we make. Manufacturing is about improving the human condition, one innovation at a time,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “Rep. Newhouse is helping to make our success possible by standing with manufacturers when it matters and casting the right votes.”

“Manufacturers employ over 12 million men and women in the U.S., who are making everything from lifesaving medicines to the most cutting edge technology. The strength of manufacturing in America is responsible for the success of America in the world. When manufacturing succeeds, America succeeds, so Rep. Newhouse’s consistent support for manufacturing means he is supporting a better future for all Americans.”         

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.

The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) is the largest manufacturing association in the United States, representing small and large manufacturers in every industrial sector and in all 50 states. Manufacturing employs more than 12 million men and women, contributes $2.17 trillion to the U.S. economy annually, has the largest economic impact of any major sector and accounts for two-thirds of private-sector research and development. The NAM is the powerful voice of the manufacturing community and the leading advocate for a policy agenda that helps manufacturers compete in the global economy and create jobs across the United States.
