Manufacturers Push Infrastructure Improvement Agenda


The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and OMA this week released “Building to Win,” a new initiative focused on our nation’s failing infrastructure. Both major party presidential candidates have indicated their desire to address our infrastructure needs in 2017.  The NAM and OMA will work collaboratively to encourage the next president and lawmakers in Ohio to address the most pressing infrastructure priorities. In a joint release, OMA President Eric Burkland said, “Among OMA’s top policy goals is a modern, job-supporting infrastructure.  We must invest in updating and expanding our multi-modal transportation infrastructure, including roads, bridges, rails and ports, as well as our water treatment systems. Infrastructure improvement is a state and federal priority for manufacturing.” Please see the full release and key recommendations of the initiative here10/12/2016
