Congressman Bryan Steil (R-WI-01) visited Evinrude Outboard Motors world headquarters in Sturtevant, Wisconsin last week. Steil met with the company's leadership team, toured the engine manufacturing plant and engineering facility, and spoke with many of the company's 650 employees. With the U.S. Congress on recess until after Labor Day, now is a great time to host elected officials at facilities and NMMA stands ready to help organize visits.

Jeff Wasil, Manager of environmental compliance and regulatory development at Evinrude, and Chris Campbell, Manager of operations and supply chain at Evinrude, led the facility tour and discussed the company's concerns with expanding prevalence of E15 in the market place, workforce development challenges, and the need for regulatory certainty with respect to tariffs and trade agreements.
