Beginning April 12, lumber and building material dealers from across the country will be meeting virtually with members of Congress to advocate on behalf of the industry’s legislative priorities as part of LBM Advocacy Week 2021.
Dealers will be focusing on issues related to affordable housing, including the Softwood Lumber Agreement, federal minimum wage and immigration reform, as well as COVID-19 employer liability protection.
In conjunction with LBM Advocacy Week, the National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association (NLBMDA) is encouraging members to contact their legislators in Congress in support of these priorities.
Here are links to the grassroots alerts for all four of the LBM Advocacy Week priority areas:
- Softwood Lumber Agreement
- Raise the Wage Act
- Immigration Reform
- COVID-19 Employer Liability Protection
