2013 Legislative Priorities

“Having a strong presence in Montpelier is critical to the survival of

the Forest Products Industry in Vermont.” This sentiment was stated

repeatedly at our Regional Roundups and other meetings this year.

It is essential to have someone in Montpelier monitoring the issues,

providing information to the membership, participating in discussions

concerning the industry, promoting the industry and defending it,

when necessary.
