NACD Fly-In 2019
May 03, 2019
On May 1 and 2, 2019, over 300 members of the National Association of Chemical Distributors (NACD) went to Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. to talk to members of Congress and their staff about issues important to our industry. These issues include long-term renewal of CFATS (Anti-Terrorism Measures for Chemical Facilities), Drive Safe Act (addressing truck driver shortage), Chinese Tariffs, Railroad Oversight and STEM Education. Steve Halpin, President, and Laura Morrisson, Director of Sales, had productive meetings with Rep. Grace Napolitano, Rep. Norma Torres, Rep. Katie Porter, and Sen. Kamala Harris. The overall reaction was positive and the representatives are committed to helping us on our issues.
