The Window & Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) released today a comprehensive advocacy agenda for 2015.

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."As the new 114th Congress convenes, lawmakers will have the opportunity now to advance a pro-growth agenda that will continue the economic recovery," said WDMA Chairman Steve Donner, General Manager of Weiland Sliding Doors and Windows in Oceanside, Calif."The WDMA 2015 National Policy Agenda lays out proposals that will boost national energy efficiency, reduce burdensome regulations, promote smart tax policy, and support quality American manufacturing jobs."

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.
