The National Waste & Recycling Association (NWRA) has released its 2019 Federal Legislative and Regulatory Agenda in advance of the House and Senate finalizing committee assignments for members of the 116th Congress. The agenda stakes out the waste and recycling industry’s policy positions on three dozen federal issues.
“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,” said NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith in a statement. “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.”
“NWRA welcomes the freshmen members of Congress,” added Jim Riley, vice president for federal affairs and deputy general counsel at NWRA. “We look forward to engaging both sides of the political aisle to achieve bipartisan solutions on our industry’s top issues.”
