Wood Products Industry Leaders Take to Capitol Hill

May 15, 2012

WASHINGTON – Representatives from the wood products community are on Capitol Hill today meeting with members of Congress to discuss federal issues affecting their industry and its more than 300,000 workers.

The American Wood Council (AWC) Fly-In has gathered industry leaders from across the country to advocate on behalf of members' interests regarding environmental regulations (such as Boiler MACT), building energy performance, and fair marketplace treatment for biobased building products.

"It is important that the leaders in our industry have this opportunity to tell our elected representatives what we do, why it's important, and what they can do to help us continue to operate in what is a complex and ever-evolving regulatory and legislative environment," said AWC President Robert Glowinski. "The products that AWC members make help support hundreds of thousands of jobs across the country and are among the most environmentally responsible and structurally sound out there; additionally, their use in housing and other construction will contribute greatly to economic recovery. Legislators need to understand this, and we're here today to share our story."
