National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Vice President of Infrastructure, Legal and Regulatory Policy Rosario Palmieri issued this statement in support of the Senates rejection of S.J. Res. 19, a constitutional amendment that would obstruct the opportunity to participate in the political process:
In rejecting an attempt to limit political speech, the Senate claimed a victory for democracy. Participation in the political process is among our most fundamental rightsattempts to restrict citizens and groups freedom to express their political beliefs must be guarded against. Manufacturers are more engaged than ever because they know that policies from Washington have a clear effect on their ability to grow and compete. The NAM will continue to stand up and protect their voice.
