Each Spring representatives from the Mountain States Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association head to Washington, DC to join lumber dealers from across the country to help educate the United States Congressmen and women and Senators on issues that impact our industry and your livelihood.

This year there were four primary areas of focus. Please click on each topic to download a pdf with more information:

  1. Estate Tax Repeal

  3. Regulatory Reform
  4. Renewal of the U.S. - Canada Softwood Lumber Agreement

In addition, we always bring forward issues on beetle-kill, general forest health, multi-use of our forests, and other business and compliance issues that will impact how you do business.
