WDMA Releases 2014 National Policy Agenda for the Window, Door, and Skylight Industry

The Window & Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) released today a comprehensive legislative and regulatory policy agenda for 2014.

As the U.S. economy continues its gradual recovery, WDMA has outlined a number of policies that are top priorities for the window, door, and skylight industry that will aid in the recovery of the housing and construction industry, and support continued job creation in the vital U.S. manufacturing sector.   "Manufacturers are ramping up their factories again, but policymakers need to know that overly-burdensome regulations and continued uncertainty about the fiscal priorities of Congress and the Administration continue to threaten the economic recovery.In the 2014 WDMA National Policy Agenda, our members have laid out proposals that will boost national energy efficiency, promote smart tax policy, and support quality manufacturing jobs in our communities," said WDMA Chair Mike Salsieder, President of Kolbe & Kolbe Millwork in Wausau, Wisc. "We look forward to using this new National Policy Agenda to guide frank and open conversations with Congress and the Administration."

The 2014 WDMA National Policy Agenda is divided into eight different policy areas:

Energy Conservation;

Building Codes;

Environmental Stewardship;

Building Safety;

Housing & Economic Policy;

Tax Policy;

Product Supply and Trade; and

Workforce/Workplace

 

WDMA looks forward to working with policymakers to support fiscally sound policies that will spur job creation, and to undo or mitigate the effects of recent actions that overly burden manufacturers with more red tape and costly federal rules and regulations. The 2014 National Policy Agenda will be distributed to all members of Congress and key Administration officials and will be used during WDMA members' visits with their elected representatives during the WDMA Spring Meeting and Legislative Conference March 31-April 2 in Washington, DC.
