U.S. Representative Rodney Frelinghuysen (NJ-11) received the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence today in recognition of his consistent support of manufacturers and their employees across the United States. The Award was presented at an event sponsored by NAM member Sanofi-Aventis in Bridgewater, New Jersey. Sanofi-Aventis CEO Greg Irace made the formal presentation.
"Manufacturing is a keystone of this nation's economic engine, and a strong manufacturing base is essential for a strong and growing economy," said Frelinghuysen. "It's hard to envision significant job creation in America without a vibrant manufacturing sector and that is why I work to make sure that government gets off manufacturers' backs AND their balance sheets."
