Nation’s Largest Industrial Trade Association Says Rep. Hurd Champion of Manufacturing

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Representative Will Hurd received the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence. The award is based on his votes in the 115th Congress on issues that are critical to manufacturing in the United States.

“Manufacturing impacts almost every aspect of our lives, from how we treat illnesses to the cars we drive. These businesses are innovators that push this nation forward and it is critical that we keep unnecessary government regulations out of the way so that we can continue to expand opportunity,” said Hurd. “I am proud to receive the Manufacturing Legislative Excellence Award today and will continue do all I can to create policies with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle that expand opportunities for South and West Texans.”

“In Texas and across America, manufacturers are creating jobs, investing in communities and raising wages. That’s a direct result of Rep. Hurd’s support for policies that have strengthened manufacturing and created opportunities for America’s manufacturing workers,” said NAM Senior Vice President of Policy and Government Relations Aric Newhouse. “The NAM is proud to stand with lawmakers like Rep. Hurd who understand manufacturing’s critical contributions to our economy and are working actively to advance the manufacturing agenda.”

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.
