 Rep. Ted Budd (R-NC) speaks to attendees
The Window & Door Manufacturers Association hosted its 2017 Spring Meeting and Legislative Conference in late March, where WDMA members met with congressional offices on Capitol Hill. The meeting also included a political analysis from political commentator and author Matt Lewis, speeches at the Washington briefing breakfast by Rep. Ted Budd (R-NC) and Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-VA), and a congressional reception in the Rayburn Congressional Office Building.

WDMA members focused on a range of issues as part of the visits with lawmakers that included advancing a broad federal regulatory reform agenda; improving regulations for businesses by making needed reforms to the Administrative Procedure Act; and supporting common-sense reforms to the implementation of the Lead: Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule and urging EPA to conduct a new economic analysis of the Rule.

Members also discussed supporting legislation to clearly define what technical assistance the Department of Energy can provide in developing new model energy codes and to guarantee that certain products and technologies are not given preferential treatment.

The event was successful, according to WDMA, which says the meeting will help make a difference in advancing its legislative and regulatory agenda.
