The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) has awarded Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX-10) the NAM’s Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence at an event hosted by NAM member Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America (MCFA). Congressman McCaul supported 97 percent of the policies identified by the NAM as critical to the success of manufacturing in the United States during the 112th Congress.

“Mitsubishi Caterpillar Forklift America Inc. thanks Congressman McCaul for outstanding efforts as a voice in Washington for manufacturing,” said Ken Barina, vice president of corporate planning and services, MCFA. “It is leaders like Congressman McCaul who know that manufacturers are drivers of economic growth, job creation and prosperity.”

“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 McCaul understands this and has consistently supported the pro-manufacturing agenda through his votes in Congress.”

These awards are based on members of Congress’s votes on key manufacturing legislation identified by the NAM in the 112th Congress. These included key 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.

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.
