Kevin Bishop (864) 250-1417 or Lorcan Connick (202) 224-5972WASHINGTON -- The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) has awarded Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) the NAM Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence. The award is based on Senator Graham's votes in the 113th Congress on issues that are critical to manufacturing in the United States.
"Manufacturers in South Carolina 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 Senator Graham who understand what is at stake and seek to implement policies that will foster innovation, growth and competitiveness."
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.
According to the association, 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 $2.08 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.
