The 2015 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 Congress and the Obama Administration to promote fiscally-sound policies that will spur job creation, continue the housing recovery and improve the manufacturing climate in this country," said WDMA President and CEO Michael O'Brien.

The 2015 WDMA 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 on March 23-25 in Washington, DC.
