“Ensuring the manufacturing industry in Texas remains strong.”
HOUSTON, TX – Lt. Governor Dan Patrick announced the endorsement for his re-election from Texas Association of Manufacturers (MPACT). Tony Bennett, MPACT board member and President & CEO of the Texas Association of Manufacturers, said:
“The Manufacturers PAC of Texas (MPACT) is pleased to endorse Lt. Governor Dan Patrick for reelection. Since his first election to the office in 2014, Lt. Governor Patrick has worked with his Senate colleagues to foster an environment in Texas that supports manufacturing innovation, high-quality and high-paying manufacturing jobs, and robust career and technical education to enhance our state’s manufacturing workforce. The members of MPACT look forward to working with Lt. Governor Patrick and members of the Texas Legislature who share the same goal of ensuring that the manufacturing industry in Texas remains strong.”
The Manufacturers PAC of Texas (MPACT) supports pro-business policies by Texas’ elected officials. MPACT represents Texas’ biggest job creators – manufacturers – who account for 13.07 percent of the total output in the state – more than $241 billion (2019 data) – and employ more than 881,000 Texans in jobs that pay an average compensation of over $90,100 annually. On average, each manufacturing job created also provides five additional jobs in our communities. For two decades, Texas remains the number one exporting state for manufactured goods in the United States.
