ALTON – The Alton Daily News featured a story recently about the tough time issues affecting manufacturing had in the Illinois General Assembly and specifically mentioned TMA’s 2017 Legislative Scorecard.

The Technology Manufacturers Association of Illinois released its legislative scorecard for the General Assembly. Some members get high marks for supporting bills that would help the manufacturing industry, but more than three-quarters of lawmakers were seen as hostile.

“We don’t need to be Indiana but we need to be competitive,” TMA Government Relations Committee chairman Zach Mottl said. “They want to say they support manufacturing and middle-class jobs, but when I look at their voting record, they don’t.”
