RVIA and NMMA host Manufacturing Roundtable with Congresswoman Walorski

RVIA and the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) hosted a manufacturing roundtable with Congresswoman Jackie Walorski (IN-2) on Aug. 25 in Elkhart to showcase the thriving RV and recreational boating manufacturing industries in Indiana’s Second Congressional District and their impact on the local community and state, as well as the national manufacturing economy.

During the Manufacturing Roundtable, Rep. Walorski and a dozen representatives from the RV and marine industries discussed the biggest issues facing their industries. Workforce development and the challenges companies are facing in finding and retaining qualified workers was one of the central issues discussed affecting the majority of marine and RV manufacturers.

Tax policy was another hot topic and Rep. Walorski shared information on a plan for tax reform, entitled “A Better Way.” House leadership, and Rep. Walorski, promise to make tax reform a priority early next year.

Walorski also spoke enthusiastically about the opportunities she has had to work with the industries through cosponsoring the Outdoor Recreation’s Economic Contributions Act, support of the HUD rule to redefine RVs, and co-founding the House RV Caucus. The Roundtable was an excellent opportunity for RVIA and NMMA members to have a dialog with Rep. Walorski in the lead up to the November election
