AF&PA Statement on Administration Regulatory Agenda

WASHINGTON, D.C. (News release) - American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) President and CEO Donna Harman and Clearwater Paper Corporation President and CEO and AF&PA Board Chair Linda Massman issued the following statement after attending the White House "Cut the Red Tape" event where Vice President Mike Pence outlined the administration's regulatory agenda.

"We support the administration in its mission to achieve regulatory reform that will allow the paper and wood products industry to innovate, invest, create jobs and compete at home and around the globe," said Harman. "Our companies account for four percent of U.S. manufacturing GDP, employ 900,000 men and women in rural and urban communities across 45 states and meet a roughly $50 billion annual payroll. When we work together to advance regulatory policies that unleash economic growth, our industry's future only brightens."

"Common-sense public policy that ensures regulations do more good than harm will lay a foundation for growing the economy and creating opportunity for all Americans now and in decades to come," said Massman. "We will look forward to working together with the administration, Congress and stakeholders to achieve those shared goals."
