Representative Peter Breen Named “Friend of Manufacturing” by Illinois Manufacturers’ Association

State Representative Peter Breen (R-Lombard) has been named a “Friend of Manufacturing” by the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association (IMA) for his votes that impacted the manufacturing sector in 2017-2018.

“After years of neglect and even hostility, it’s time for our state government to support the manufacturing and business community—Illinois’ economic climate depends on the success of these job creators,” said Breen. “It’s an honor to be recognized for my work to help manufacturing companies to start and grow in our state.”

Upon announcing the award recipients, IMA Vice President & CEO Mark Denzler said, “While we often hear from lawmakers that they are concerned about jobs and economic development, the IMA’s Legislative Voting Scorecard will actually show which elected officials support Illinois job creators. The IMA appreciates those lawmakers who have a strong record of support for the manufacturing sector.”

The IMA is a not-for-profit trade association for Illinois manufacturers. Founded in 1893, it is the oldest and largest statewide manufacturing trade association in the United States. The IMA’s mission is to strengthen the economic, social, environmental and governmental conditions for manufacturing and allied enterprises in the state of Illinois, resulting in an enlarged business base and increased employment.

Illinois State Representatives were scored on their votes on 23 different bills that were brought to the House floor for a vote during the 100th General Assembly, and those receiving a score of 80% or higher received the award.
