2017 Manufacturers Day A Great Success!

Many thanks to Speaker Joe Straus and House Manufacturing Caucus Chairman Wayne Faircloth for joining the Texas Association of Manufacturers (TAM) to kick off our 2017 Manufacturers Day. TAM members from across Texas gathered at the Capitol to impress upon lawmakers that #ManufacturingMatters. We urged state leaders to embrace legislation that would encourage investment, enhance transportation safety and productivity, and strengthen workforce education.

Manufacturers Day concluded with an evening reception featuring the Lockheed Martin Lightning II F-35 Demonstrator.
