Bunning, McConnell Honored for Pro-Business Voting Records

By wmadministrator

U.S. Sens. Jim Bunning and Mitch McConnell have received the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence, an award honoring federal lawmakers whose voting records consistently support manufacturing in America.

The NAM Award is given to members of the House and Senate who support key manufacturing votes 70 percent or more of the time, as determined by a NAM member-led advisory committee comprised of both small and large manufacturers.

Bunning’s pro-manufacturing voting record was 85 percent; McConnell’s was 100 percent.

In the 110th Congress, 43 senators and 181 representatives earned the NAM Award.

The National Association of Manufacturers is the nation’s largest industrial trade association, representing small and large manufacturers in every industrial sector and in all 50 states.
