WASHINGTON (Feb. 27, 2014) - The American Chemistry Council (ACC) announced today that it has launched advertisements complimenting Senator Mike Crapo and Congressman Mike Simpson for their support of policies that will grow the economy and create jobs in Idaho.

"New jobs and a stronger economy are issues that are dependent on the kind of solid conservative leadership that Senator Mike Crapo and Congressman Mike Simpson have shown on behalf of the people of Idaho," explained Cal Dooley , President and CEO of ACC. "Their support for policies that encourage greater domestic energy production, promote innovation and keep taxes low has been critical to America's manufacturing sector and small businesses in Idaho and around the country."

Dooley added, "In a time when much of the political discourse in America is negative, it's important to highlight the positive work Senator Crapo and Congressman Simpson are doing to promote the two most important issues facing our country-economic growth and job creation." 

The advertisements will run for three weeks in Idaho Falls, Boise and Twin Falls. They encourage constituents to contact the offices of the Senator and the Congressman to tell them to keep up the good work.
