National Association of Manufacturers cites tax cut vote in honoring Rep. Martha McSally with Manufacturing Legislative Excellence Award

Arizona Rep. Martha McSally has been recognized by the National Association of Manufacturers with the group’s Manufacturing Legislative Excellence Award for her outstanding record of support for issues important to manufacturers.

McSally has 96 percent voting record on NAM issues in the current Congress.

The Manufacturing Legislative Excellence Award honors members of Congress who demonstrate support for policies that enhance the ability of U.S. manufacturers to succeed in the global economy.

“The Arizona Manufacturers Council deeply appreciates Rep. McSally’s commitment to supporting legislation important to manufacturers,” Arizona Manufacturers Council Executive Director Allison Gilbreath said. “Rep. McSally stood up for manufacturers on issues as varied as civil justice reform, transportation, trade, and taxes.”

NAM included votes on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the sweeping tax reform bill that has been widely credited with helping to fuel the unprecedentedly strong U.S. economy, among the bills the group scored in the 115th Congress.

“Rep. McSally’s support for the big tax reform bill was so important,” Gilbreath said. “The most recent jobs report said the U.S. economy created 250,000 jobs last month, and that unemployment is at a nearly-50-year low. We wouldn’t be seeing those types of numbers and manufacturers wouldn’t be reporting their high levels of optimism without Rep. McSally’s commitment to policies that lower taxes and reduce regulatory burdens on job creators.”
