The Inaugural Forum …
In May 2018 and previously in March 2017, insulation contractors, suppliers, and manufacturers from several industry organizations came together for a day of education on relevant policy issues, followed by visits to lawmakers’ offices on Capitol Hill to advocate for a variety of reforms. In their meetings with Congressional staff, participants explained the need for:
- Policy solutions to address the industry’s labor shortage
- Smart, transparent, and data-based regulations
- Robust energy-efficiency tax credits
- Continued funding of Department of Energy programs that help advance the development of new energy-efficiency technology
At the 2018 Forum, the American Chemistry Council released a report detailing the substantial contributions of the insulation industry to the American economy.
