Congressman Cole Awarded Manufacturing Legislative Excellence Award
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Cole was recently awarded the National Association of Manufacturer (NAM) Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence. This award recognizes members of Congress who support a pro-growth, pro-manufacturing and pro-worker policy agenda.
"I am very proud to have received this award that recognizes my record in supporting economic growth policies and American workers, specifically manufacturers," Congressman Cole said. "Manufacturing exports made up 91 percent of Oklahoma's total international exports in 2003. Policies that help small manufacturers compete globally will surely help Oklahoma compete in a world-wide market," Congressman Cole said.
The NAM presents this award to members of Congress who achieved a rating of 70 percent or better on votes that coincide with the association's agenda. Congressman Cole received a score of 100 percent.
