In an effort to let companies know how their legislators voted on key manufacturing issues, the National Association of Manufacturers has rated the 109th Congress . The votes were selected by NAM's Key Vote Advisory Committee which consists of small, medium and large manufacturing companies.
There is also a list of voting records for the past four years.
NAM is "aggressively seeking to influence the terms of public-policy debates, to reward members of Congress who have supported our agenda and to tell those who have been on the wrong side of the issues that America's manufacturers and workers expect better from our elected officials."
NAM also chooses winners for its NAM Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence.
