The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) represents nearly 325 electrical and medical imaging manufacturers that make the equipment that powers U.S. buildings, hospitals, electric utilities, industrial facilities, and transportation infrastructure. We support congressional action on energy and infrastructure legislation to help the country recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and get our economy moving again.
NEMA recommendations focus on high-value-added sectors and segments of our industries and the economy overall. We believe that when U.S. companies succeed, both domestically and in overseas markets, it helps U.S. employment, so public policy should focus on attracting businesses to the U.S and fostering open trade. Successfully moving the U.S. economy into the post-pandemic Next Normal period means moving to the extent possible beyond short-term proposals and into a long-term investment the benefit the country in measurable ways.
In June 2020, NEMA published a series of recommendations entitled “NEMA Policy Priorities: Moving Quickly to the Next Normal.”
