U.S. Reps Debbie Dingell and Haley Stevens recognized for support of vehicle supplier industry

In the House, Congresswoman Stevens helped improve the auto rule of origin provisions of the USMCA and built Congressional support for the measure. She is a leading House advocate of the CHIPS Act, and its legacy chip provision for the motor vehicle and parts sector. She has a track record of working across the aisle to deliver for Michigan’s manufacturers supporting broad competitiveness, manufacturing and business priorities in the House and often articulating these to House leadership. As Chair of the House Science Committee Research & Technology Subcommittee, she has championed federal funding and training programs to assist the motor vehicle parts sector in its transition to an EV future.

“I am unbelievably honored to receive this recognition. I’ll never stop advocating in Congress for our Michigan manufacturers and automotive suppliers,” said Rep. Stevens (MI-11). “They are truly the backbone of the booming SE Michigan economy and are leading the industry in innovating our future.”

The Industry Champion Award is presented in the memory of Joseph M. Magliochetti, a former MEMA chairman who also served as the chairman and CEO of Dana Corp. until his death in 2003. He was widely recognized as a leader and a visionary in the supplier industry, and as MEMA chairman, he left a legacy of advocacy and outreach on behalf of all vehicle suppliers.

Automotive and commercial vehicle suppliers are the largest employer of manufacturing jobs in the U.S., contributing nearly 3 percent of the U.S. gross domestic product.
