Washington, D.C. – The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and Rockwell Automation will host Rep. David Joyce (OH-14) for a facility tour to meet employees and hold a business leader roundtable focused on the historic tax reform law and its positive impact on Ohio’s 14th District.
Manufacturing contributes an estimated $2.25 trillion to the U.S. economy and supports 687,400 jobs in Ohio alone.
