WDMA Unveils 2011 Policy Agenda

February 14, 2011

Covering such areas as energy conservation, building codes, building safety, housing, taxes and trade, the Window & Door Manufacturers Association has released its legislative and regulatory policy agenda for 2011. The document outlines a number of policy positions that are top priorities of the window, door and skylight manufacturing sector for the 112th Congress.

"As the 112th Congress gets to work, America's window, door and skylight manufacturers stand ready to work with members on both sides of the aisle to advance policies that will revive the residential and commercial construction markets and protect and enhance the global competitiveness of our manufacturing sector," says Steve Sisson, WDMA chairman and VP/GM of Michigan-based door maker Karona Inc. "WDMA's 2011 National Policy Agenda offers a blueprint for sound legislative, regulatory and code policies which we believe will carry out those goals. We look forward to a productive dialogue with policymakers in Congress and the Administration to move them forward over the coming year."

WDMA 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, scheduled for March 14-16 in Washington, D.C.
