MFG Chemical, Inc. Met with Members of Congress During SOCMA’s 10th Annual Washington Fly-In
[Dalton, Georgia] – MFG Chemical, Inc. recently joined specialty chemical manufacturers on Capitol Hill to advocate on behalf of issues that are important to their companies and the industry as part of the Society of Chemical Manufacturers & Affiliates 10th Annual Washington Fly-In.
Held April 25-26 in Washington, D.C., the Fly-In gives SOCMA members an opportunity to create dialogue with members of Congress and their staff about policies and initiatives supporting competition and innovation in the chemical industry. This year, SOCMA members particularly focused on issues such as regulatory reform, the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill and other trade issues, as well as Toxic Substances Control Act implementation, and the Risk Management Program.
“The Washington Fly-In underscores the importance of MFG Chemical and specialty chemical manufacturing to the economy,” said Keith Arnold, President MFG Chemical. “The opportunity to meet with members of Congress and share our story and the issues that keep us up at night is invaluable, and we are proud to be a part of this effort,”
During the Fly-In MFG Chemical met with Representative Tom Graves (R-GA-14), the Office of Senator John H. Isakson (R-GA), the Office of Senator David Perdue (R-GA), the Office of Ways & Means, and the Office of Senate Finance and shared information about our company and its economic impact on the district.
“SOCMA’s Washington Fly-In provides an opportunity for our members to establish relationships between their companies and elected officials,” said Robert F. Helminiak, SOCMA Managing Director of Government and Public Relations. “Federal policies and regulations can have a direct impact on MFG Chemical’s business, which is why it is important to cultivate and maintain relationships with elected leaders. Collectively our voice is stronger, and we appreciate MFG Chemical’s participation in the Fly-In.”
MFG Chemical has been a SOCMA member since 1990 and has participated in 8 out of the 10 Washington Fly-In events.
