 Oct. 30, 2018 Sacramento, CA -- The California Manufacturers & Technology Association (CMTA) released its 2018 Champions of Manufacturing Vote Record today for the state's 120 legislators. It identifies action taken this year on the sector's most important Assembly and Senate floor votes, mainly on CMTA's MFG Maker and Breaker bills.

"Manufacturers are making long-term decisions about where to make investments, expand operations and create new jobs. California laws and regulations can be a big factor in those decisions," said CMTA President Dorothy Rothrock. "California has the opportunity to remain the world's most advanced and energy-efficient manufacturing economy but we need a renewed focus on smart policies to boost our share of US manufacturing investments. We appreciate legislators who understand the impact of policies on manufacturing and vote to protect this crucial economic sector in the state," she added."

CMTA notes that there were many important manufacturing votes, on the floor and in policy committees, not included in this analysis. The votes used in the record reflect the first time legislators voted on the substantive policy represented in a bill after having been informed of CMTA's position on the policy and its positive or negative impact on manufacturers and technology companies.
