LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Ken Horn was recognized on Tuesday as a recipient of the 2016 Legislator of the Year Award by the Michigan Manufacturers Association (MMA) due to his leadership on issues critical to the manufacturing industry in Michigan.
“Manufacturing is what put our state on the map,” said Horn, R-Frankenmuth. “Creating jobs has always been a top legislative priority of mine and as we examine the way Michigan’s economy has continued to recover, it is important that we recognize the incredible role the manufacturing industry played in that comeback.”
Horn was recognized for his lead on reforming regulatory issues within the industry and championing legislation to fight increased health care costs for employers.
MMA President and CEO Chuck Hadden presented the award to Horn Tuesday evening during the MMA’s 2016 Legislative Reception in Lansing.
“It is a true honor that these hardworking folks have noticed what we’ve done in Lansing and I accept this award with sincere gratitude,” Horn said. “Manufacturing is truly the backbone of our state’s economy and I look forward to working with the association, as well as manufacturers in my district as we continue Michigan’s great comeback.”
