WASHINGTON — The American Wood Council has launched a legislative scorecard to track federal legislators’ votes and bill sponsorship on public policies affecting the use and manufacture of wood products.

“AWC is constantly meeting with federal legislators to educate them on our industry’s policy priorities, such as regulatory reform, building energy requirements, and a host of manufacturing environmental air regulations. Our wood products manufacturers directly employ more than 400,000 people in the United States. Going into an election year, this scorecard is a way for those in the industry to easily track how their legislators are voting in Congress, and if they’ve been supportive of our issues,” said AWC Vice President of Government Affairs Sarah Dodge.
