Title: More on former Michigan Gov To Lead Industry
October 25, 2004
Engler to lead
By Marguerite Higgins
THE WASHINGTON TIMES
Former Michigan Gov. John M. Engler is the newest president of
the 13,000-member National Association of Manufacturers.
Mr. Engler, 56, joined the nation's largest industry trade group
at the beginning of this month, taking the reins from Jerry
Jasinowski, who served as president for 15 years.
"Manufacturing is still the backbone of America's good
economy. I don't envision a time when our country is not a leader in
that sector," Mr. Engler said.
"We have a keen interest in bringing about a resolution with
the asbestos" lawsuits, he said.
He insists that lower taxes on businesses and reasonable,
scientifically based regulations will help revive the manufacturing
sector, which was hit hard after the September 11 terrorist attacks in
2001 and the recession.
