Smith receives award from manufacturers

Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) has received the National Association of Manufacturers Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence at the Nebraska Business and Industrial Products Show in Grand Island.

Smith said he was honored to receive the award, noting the Third District alone is home to more than 300 manufacturing facilities employing nearly 27,000 people. Smith said. "In this economy it is essential we remove red tape on our manufacturers, and work to make sure our exports are competitive abroad."

NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons said "It is critical that Washington creates policies to keep us competitive and Congressman Smith understands this and has consistently supported the pro-manufacturing agenda through his votes in Congress."
