The NAM and Rayonier Honor Congressman Ander Crenshaw for Supporting Manufacturing
The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) awarded Congressman Ander Crenshaw the NAM’s Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence at an event hosted by NAM member Rayonier. Congressman Ander Crenshaw supported 100 percent of the policies identified by the NAM as critical to the success of manufacturing in the United States during the 112th Congress.
Congressman Ander Crenshaw, Chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government, stated, “Florida manufacturers, including Rayonier, are an important sector of our economy, using cutting-edge technology to create efficiency and provide good-paying jobs. I am proud to stand by these companies - large and small - by supporting common-sense policies that cut red tape, open new markets, and keep taxes low.”
“On behalf of Rayonier, I would like to extend our gratitude to Congressman Crenshaw for his steadfast commitment and leadership in ensuring the manufacturing voice is heard in Washington,” said Paul Boynton, Rayonier chairman, president and CEO. “Congressman Crenshaw understands the policies needed to allow manufacturers to continue to serve as key drivers of economic growth, job creation and prosperity.”
These awards are based on members of Congress’ votes on important manufacturing legislation identified by the NAM in the 112th Congress. These included critical votes on issues such as energy policy, taxes and regulations, among others. Each key vote was selected by the NAM’s Key Vote Advisory Committee, which is comprised of NAM member companies and associations.
“Manufacturers today compete in a global marketplace,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “It is critical that Washington creates policies to keep us competitive and maintain our mantle of economic leadership. Congressman Crenshaw understands this and has consistently supported the pro-manufacturing agenda through his votes in Congress.”
Members of Congress are notified in advance when key votes are pending and why the key vote designation has been made. The NAM is nonpartisan and does not endorse candidates. Voting records for all members of Congress and further details about NAM Key Manufacturing Votes are available here.
