Posted by Karen Koenig | Posted: 01/18/2013 10:30AM


Window & Door Manufacturers Association, WDMA WASHINGTON - The Window & Door Manufacturers Assn. has released a list of national policy agenda items for the window, door, and skylight industry. They include: Energy Conservation, Building Codes, Environmental Stewardship, Building Safety, Housing & Economic Policy, Tax Policy, Product Supply & Trade and the Workforce/Workplace.

"Manufacturers are trying to ramp up their factories again, but policymakers need to know that overly-burdensome regulations and continued uncertainty about the fiscal priorities of Congress and the Administration continue to threaten the burgeoning economic recovery. In the 2013 WDMA National Policy Agenda, our members have laid out proposals that will boost national energy efficiency, promote smart tax policy, and support quality manufacturing jobs in our communities," WDMA Chair Ann Duebner, vice president of Sales and Administration for Eggers Industries, said in a statement.

"We look forward to using this new National Policy Agenda to guide frank and open conversations with Congress and the Administration in 2013," she added.
