Cramer Receives Legislative Excellence Award for 100% Pro-Manufacturing Voting Record
FARGO, N.D. – At a tour of the Case New Holland Plant in Fargo today, Congressman Kevin Cramer was awarded the Manufacturing Legislative Excellence Award – an award given to legislators by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) for pro-manufacturing voting records.
According to the association, the NAM Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence honors members of Congress who demonstrate support for policies that enhance the ability of U.S. manufacturers to succeed in the global economy. Cramer’s voting record during the 114th Congress for manufacturing-related legislation was 100 percent, the highest of any member of Congress in the North Dakota delegation.
“While it’s always nice to accept an award, the real winners are the men and women who are seeing more good-paying manufacturing jobs across the United States,” said Cramer. “And, while acknowledging that some manufacturers like Case New Holland never left, what’s really rewarding is seeing more companies, both big and small, investing in America again thanks to a pro-jobs, pro-manufacturing president. It’s really great to see that level of optimism that we’re seeing across this great land – returning America to its prominence as a global leader in manufacturing.”
According to a survey conducted by NAM on March 31, Manufacturers’ optimism is at a 20-year high of 93 percent – up from 56.6 percent one year ago and 77.8 percent in December. “Across America, manufacturers’ optimism is soaring, in no small part because of President Trump’s laser-like focus on pursuing bold action, particularly on rethinking red tape to address regulatory reform, to accelerate a jobs surge in America,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons.
Cramer also received the manufacturing award for his voting record during the 113th Congress.
