Today, Congressman Shuster received the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence at an award event sponsored by Kennametal Inc. in Bedford, Pennsylvania. The NAM Award honors federal lawmakers whose voting records have consistently supported manufacturing in America. The NAM Award is given to members of the House and Senate who support key manufacturing votes 70 percent or more of the time, as determined by an advisory committee composed of NAM members from small and large manufacturers.

Shuster’s NAM voting record was an exemplary 100 percent in the 110th Congress. He was one of 43 senators and 181 representatives who earned the NAM Award. Members of Congress are notified in advance when an upcoming vote has been designated a “key vote” by the NAM. 

Voting records for members of Congress -- including those who scored 70 percent or better to earn the NAM Award -- are available at
