NAM President to Testify on Behalf of Judge Roberts

By September 15, 2005General

Later today, NAM President John Engler will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on behalf of Judge John Roberts. As you all well know by now, we have endorsed Judge Roberts’ nomination for Chief Justice according to specific criteria.

Here’s a list of the people who will be testifying today. You’ll see both ends of the spectrum represented, but you’ll see exactly one trade association representative, exactly one representative of the voice of manufacturing. John Engler will be there to say that we believe that getting legal costs under control begins with certainty and that begins right here at the top, the Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court.

We were the first business group to endorse John Roberts, and given his performance these past few days we are especially proud that we did so.
