NWRA RELEASES 2019 FEDERAL LEGISLATIVE AND REGULATORY AGENDA
Arlington, VA – NWRA today released its Federal Legislative & Regulatory Agenda for 2019 in advance of the House and Senate finalizing committee assignments for members of the 116th Congress. This document stakes out the waste and recycling industry’s policy positions on three dozen federal issues. The agenda can be found on NWRA’s web site here.
“Last year, NWRA’s Government Affairs Committee approved 36 policy positions on the most pressing federal issues impacting the waste and recycling industry. We have updated these positions for 2019 to reflect changes in congressional priorities as well as our successes from 2018,” stated NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith. “We will continue our aggressive lobbying effort in support of these policies aimed at maintaining a strong and robust waste and recycling industry that benefits the American public.”
Jim Riley, Vice President for Federal Affairs and Deputy General Counsel added, “NWRA welcomes the freshmen members of Congress. We look forward to engaging both sides of the political aisle to achieve bipartisan solutions on our industry’s top issues.”
The National Waste and Recycling Association represents the private sector waste and recycling services industry. Association members conduct business in all 50 states, and include companies that manage garbage, recycling and medical waste, equipment manufacturers and distributors, and a variety of other service providers.
