NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons met with Reuters reporters to talk about the future of the U.S. manufacturing economy today. Timmons was in New York for the Reuters Manufacturing and Transportation Summit.
“The next year is really setting the table,” [Timmons] said. “It is an election year. So there may be a few areas of progress that we can make on the regulatory side, but I think it is really going to be important for the presidential candidates and all the candidates running for federal office to be outlining their comprehensive plan for economic growth.”
