Entry Description

STATEHOUSE (July 1, 2013) — The Indiana Manufacturing Association (IMA) praised State Sen. John Waterman (R-Shelburn) for his 94-percent voting record in favor of pro-manufacturing legislation this past legislative session.

 

“We applaud legislators, such as Sen. Waterman, that have a positive voting record on job creation,” said Tim Rushenberg, Vice President of Governmental Affairs & Tax Policy with IMA. “Pro-jobs legislation is essential to creating the types of high-wage, high-value added jobs that Indiana needs to ensure prosperity for all Hoosiers.”

 

The IMA prioritized 18 bills as pro-manufacturing legislation in 2013. Two of the most important bills that benefit Hoosier manufacturers are SEA 465 and HB 1002. SEA 465 establishes regional councils to oversee high school vocational education so more Hoosier students graduate with job-ready skills. HEA 1002 creates the Indiana Career Council, bringing together the state’s workforce development agencies to make sure their efforts are coordinated.

 

“Improving Indiana’s manufacturing base is a topic that I have worked on for several years now,” Waterman said. “Support for Indiana’s manufacturing industry and providing Hoosiers with the proper training to succeed in the workplace have paid off. Since the low point of the recession in 2009, Indiana has added nearly 60,000 manufacturing jobs, which is the second most in the nation.”
