The Window & Door Manufacturers Association released today the 2020 WDMA National Policy Agenda a comprehensive advocacy agenda for 2020.

The Window & Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) released today the 2020 WDMA National Policy Agenda a comprehensive advocacy agenda for 2020, which outlines important policy priorities for the window, door, and skylight industry that will boost the housing and construction industry and support continued job creation in the vital U.S. manufacturing sector.

"In this critical election year, Congress and the Trump Administration have an opportunity to advance legislation and policies that will continue to extend the current economic expansion," said WDMA Chair Robert Lewis, Senior Vice President & General Counsel for Masonite International. "Window, door and skylight manufacturers are vital to the building and housing industries and a thriving economy. The WDMA National Policy Agenda outlines policies that promote energy efficiency, fair trade, eliminate excessive regulations, promote workforce development and ensure manufacturers are able to help fuel continued economic growth in 2020 and beyond."

The 2020 WDMA National Policy Agenda is divided into nine different policy areas:

  • Energy Conservation;
  • Building Codes;
  • Environmental Stewardship;
  • Building Safety;
  • Housing & Economic Policy;
  • Tax Policy;
  • Product Supply;
  • Trade Policy; and
  • Workforce/Workplace

"WDMA is excited to continue our work with Congress and the Trump Administration to promote legislative and regulatory policy that will spur job creation, support housing and building construction and improve the manufacturing climate in this country," said WDMA President and CEO Michael O'Brien.

WDMA's 2020 National Policy Agenda will be distributed to members of Congress and key Administration officials and will be used by WDMA members when they visit their U.S. Representative in Congress during the WDMA Spring Meeting and Legislative Conference on March 23-25 in Washington, D.C.
