Rep. Morgan Griffith, R-Salem, received an award today from the National Association of Manufacturers.
Here’s a release from his office with particulars:
Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) today was presented with the National Association of Manufacturers’ (NAM) Legislative Excellence Award, which recognizes Members of Congress whose legislative records support policies that enable American manufacturers to compete in the global marketplace. He accepted the award in Dublin, Virginia at Volvo’s New River Valley Manufacturing Plant, the world’s largest Volvo truck manufacturing facility.
“Manufacturing is key to the economy not only here in Virginia’s Ninth District, but to communities across the United States,” Rep. Griffith said. “Our economic policy must support existing manufacturers and also encourage the development of new businesses, new jobs, and new goods right here in our country. I’m honored to accept this award, and will continue working to advance that sort of pro-growth, pro-manufacturing economic policy.”
“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 Griffith understands this and has consistently supported the pro-manufacturing agenda through his votes in Congress.”
Here’s something for trivia buffs: Timmons was formerly an aide to George Allen when he was governor.
