The association said Sen. Toomey supported 85 percent of the policies identified by the NAM as critical to the success of manufacturing in the United States during the 112th Congress.
"United States Steel Corporation thanks Senator Toomey for ensuring that the manufacturing voice is heard in Washington," said NAM board member, James D. Garraux, general counsel and senior vice president – corporate affairs for United States Steel.
"U. S. Steel and the NAM work closely on energy, trade and environmental issues, and are pleased to honor Sen. Toomey. He knows firsthand the importance of manufacturing to our nation's long term prosperity through the creation of family-sustaining jobs and economic growth."
These awards are based on members of Congress's votes on key manufacturing legislation identified by the NAM in the 112th Congress. These included key votes on issues such as energy policy, taxes and regulations, among others.
Each key vote was selected by the NAM's Key Vote Advisory Committee, which is comprised of member companies and associations.
