Associated Equipment Distributors, a group representing companies in the construction, mining, energy, forestry, power generation, agriculture and industrial applications industries, presented its 2017 Legislative Leadership Award to U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, R-11, Hazleton.

A news release from Barletta’s office says he was nominated because of his commitment to investing in the nation’s infrastructure, lowering taxes, eliminating unnecessary regulatory burdens, and supporting career and technical education training.

“Whether it’s pushing for increased infrastructure investment, promoting lower taxes on our country’s small businesses, leading efforts to roll back burdensome regulations or seeking solutions to solve the nation’s skilled worker shortage, Congressman Barletta is always backing the interests of our industry and our country,” Brian McGuire, the group’s president and CEO, said.
