#StateofMFG Week 2 Media Wrap: Taking Care of Business from the Badger State

After visiting six states (plus the White House) over the span of seven days, the National Association of Manufacturers’ (NAM) State of Manufacturing Tour has concluded. Over the course of a week, the NAM has taken our story to the masses with hundreds of articles, op-eds and television and radio interviews. Our final stop in Madison, Wis., at the Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce’s (WMC) Business Day in Madison event, featured an especially stellar lineup of interviews with Gov. Scott Walker (R-WI), manufacturing CEOs from around the country and NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons.
