Rep. Roscoe Bartlett presented with NAM Award

March 15, 2007

Recognizing his strong voting record in support of American manufacturing and a pro-growth, pro-jobs agenda during the 109th Congress, the National Association of Manufacturers honored U.S. Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, R-Md., with its Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence during a presentation hosted by Volvo Powertrain North America.

The NAM Award is presented to members of Congress who vote in the best interest of the manufacturing economy at least 70 percent of the time on "key manufacturing votes" as designated by a special committee of NAM member companies, large and small. Bartlett's voting record was 75 percent.

When presenting the congressman with his award, Sten-ke Aronsson, senior vice president-Volvo Powertrain North America, said, "On behalf of all manufacturers and their employees in Maryland's Sixth District, I offer Congressman Bartlett our deep gratitude for his commitment to us and to our nation's manufacturing sector as a whole."

From Washington, NAM President and former Michigan Gov. John Engler added, "Rep. Bartlett's voting record demonstrates both his understanding of manufacturing's critical role in the overall strength of our economy and a willingness to do what is necessary to boost competitiveness, job creation and prosperity for the working people of Maryland."

NAM Key Vote Cards are delivered to members of Congress prior to floor action to signal that an upcoming scheduled floor vote has been selected as a potential NAM Key Manufacturing Vote.

Voting records for all members of Congress, including those who scored 70 percent or better to earn an NAM Award, are available at www.nam.org/votingrecord, along with further details about the Key Manufacturing Votes.
