WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) has awarded Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner with its NAM Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence in the 114th Congress. He received an 87 percent overall rating.

Congressman Sensenbrenner: “It’s a privilege to receive the NAM Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence and my great honor to stand up for business and manufacturing, both in Wisconsin and throughout the United States. Our nation’s success and long-term health depends on the growth and prosperity of our economy. Manufacturing plays a critical role in production and the employment of millions of Americans, and I will continue to support ongoing efforts to promote and protect this vital industry.”

Manufacturers present the NAM Award for Manufacturing Excellence to legislators who consistently support policies that enable manufacturers in the United States to create jobs, compete in the global economy, and improve living standards for manufacturing workers. NAM requires a Key Manufacturing Votes record of 70 percent or higher to be eligible for the award.
