The Window & Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) has released its 2018 WDMA National Policy Agenda, a comprehensive advocacy program that outlines important policy priorities for the window, door and skylight industry that will boost housing and construction and support continued job creation in the U.S. manufacturing sector.

“Window, door and skylight manufacturers are vital to the residential housing sector and a thriving economy,” said WDMA Chair Phil Donaldson, EVP & CFO of Andersen Corp. “Washington has an opportunity to advance pro-growth policies that will spur job creation and mitigate the effects of costly regulations that unnecessarily burden manufacturers. This agenda will guide policymakers to support policies that promote energy efficiency, eliminate unnecessary regulations, and ensure manufacturers are able to support economic growth for 2018 and beyond.”

The 2018 WDMA National Policy Agenda is divided into nine different policy areas:
  • Energy Conservation;
  • Building Codes;
  • Environmental Stewardship;
  • Building Safety;
  • Housing & Economic Policy;
  • Tax Policy;
  • Product Supply;
  • Trade Policy; and
  • Workforce/Workplace
“WDMA is looking forward to continuing our work with Congress and the Trump administration to promote fiscally-sound policies that will spur job creation, support housing and building construction and improve the manufacturing climate in this country,” said WDMA president and CEO Michael O’Brien.
WDMA’s 2018 National Policy Agenda will be distributed to members of Congress and key administration officials and will be used by WDMA members when they visit their representatives in Congress during the WDMA  Spring Meeting and Legislative Conference,  scheduled for March 19-21 in Washington, D.C.
