During the briefing today Timmons discussed the NAM’s A Manufacturing Renaissance: Four Goals for Economic Growth and what needs to be done in Washington to keep manufacturers competitive to create jobs. “This really outlines what we have heard from our members all over the country,” said Timmons.

Timmons also discussed how the U.S. is at cost disadvantage when it comes to competiting with our major trade partners, “It’s currently 20 percent more expensive to do business in this country than it is for our major trading partners. Three years ago it was 17 percent.”

Additionally, Timmons addressed the President’s decision last week on the Keystone XL pipeline saying it was an example of the Administration “putting politics over sound policy.”
