Texas manufacturers play a critical role in our state’s and nation’s continued economic recovery and long-term prosperity.

To do so, Texas manufacturers need a strong, effective voice for the industry at the State Capitol and in our nation’s Capital to ensure our industry continues to grow, invest and create jobs.

By advancing public policy that strengthens our industry sector and defending against threats, TAM is on the front lines of the public policy battles that shape and define our members’ future. TAM constantly reinforces to lawmakers, regulators, consumers and the press that manufacturers are not immune from collective consequences of state and federal legislative and regulatory actions. More than 890,000 manufacturing employees in Texas depend on smart public policy to keep the manufacturing sector strong.

  • We work to ensure reliable access to affordable energy.
  • We press for a reasonable, streamlined regulatory and permitting framework.
  • We advocate for sound tax policy.
  • We know the importance of education that delivers a highly-skilled workforce.
  • And, we know state and federal governments must invest in critical infrastructure.

These are just a few examples of TAM’s principled leadership and work on behalf of our members.

We look for opportunities to positively advance smart policy. And, we remain vigilant to anticipate and defend against threats to our industry’s ability to create jobs and drive economic growth. Member support helps TAM reinforce the need to protect the “strongest economy in the nation” and the economic engines that make it so.
