Kellie Johnson attends the National Association of Manufacturers Executive Committee meeting where the Candidate Discussed Job Creation and Improvements for Manufacturing.

December 8, 2016

Vice President–elect Mike Pence met with the members of the NAM’s Executive Committee, a group of the country’s most influential manufacturing leaders, at the NAM’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., today to share his views and listen to the members discuss the state of the industry.

They had a wide-ranging and robust conversation about the policies needed to create jobs and support working families by growing manufacturing in the United States. They discussed the need to work together to deliver tax reform, make necessary investments in our infrastructure, address regulatory burdens, rethink how regulations are developed, rein in health care costs and unleash our energy resource.

The Vice President–elect asked the NAM to help their administration prioritize which regulations should be reviewed for possible repeal that will best help support and grow manufacturing jobs in America. Manufacturers also communicated to the vice president–elect their appreciation of the president-elect’s willingness and commitment to constructively engage with manufacturing leaders and support manufacturing to create jobs and a better business climate in the United States.
