Views From a Freshman Senator

CMC joined with our manufacturing colleagues for a sit-down with Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI).  The freshman Senator, who is known for upsetting Sen. Russ Feingold in the 2010 election, brings a strong business background to the post.  Very focused on job creation, Sen. Johnson talked about the debt ceiling, environmental regulations, and his legislative efforts to enact a regulatory moratorium.
