The Association of Equipment Manufacturers is mobilizing thousands of industry supporters through its I Make America grassroots campaign.
The supporters call on lawmakers to address national priorities, including modernizing the permitting process necessary to build critical infrastructure and boost domestic energy production. Other priorities include ensuring that infrastructure funding moves expeditiously from Washington to urgently needed project sites, and passing a farm bill to guarantee a safe and abundant food supply for all Americans.
“Lawmakers must act to ensure that the 2.3 million men and women of our industry can out-innovate and outcompete the rest of the world,” AEM’s Kip Eideberg said.
The campaign includes 88,000 letters to Capitol Hill.
AEM’s I Make America campaign engaged CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023’s 139,000 attendees to raise awareness for policies intended to strengthen the industry and ensure that equipment manufacturers can continue to make the equipment that builds, powers, and feeds the world.
