The Committee For A Strong Economy (CFASE) is a Political Action Committee (PAC) established and maintained by the National Tooling and Machining Association (NTMA) for the purpose of providing its authorized members with a collective voice during U.S. federal elections.
The NTMA CFASE PAC mission is to provide campaign contributions to candidates for elected office who share the ideals of Association members and support policies to strengthen manufacturing in America.
About the NTMA CFASE PAC
The NTMA PAC accepts campaign contributions from its members and the makes a formal donation to a sitting member of Congress or an individual seeking federal office in Washington. When the NTMA PAC makes a contribution to a candidate for office, it sends a strong message that the industry supports them. Manufacturers need a loud voice in Washington and the NTMA PAC allows the Association’s members to speak with one voice and have a greater impact on the political process.
In the past two election cycles, the NTMA PAC has a 98% success rate supporting candidates for office. When manufacturing grows, so does the U.S. economy and we need lawmakers on Capitol Hill who understand the value of the industry and millions of jobs created by small and medium sized manufacturers.
Membership in the NTMA PAC is voluntary and personal contributions are permitted Association members and their eligible employees and in compliance with applicable campaign finance laws. Every dollar contributed to the PAC is spent directly on candidates for Congress who support manufacturers. The NTMA PAC is a non-partisan entity independent of any political party or candidate.
