DHA Insights: June 6, 2024


I joined the Hardwood Federation and about 60 other members for their annual Capitol Hill Fly-in on May 22 and May 23. Like last year, it was a great experience meeting with our elected representatives in the Senate and House to discuss our policy priorities including the Farm Bill, Jobs in the Woods Act, Hardwood Products Access and Development Act, and tax policy.

Our team met with members of Congress and staff from Virginia and West Virginia including Senator Capito (WV) and Representatives Cline (VA), Griffith (VA), and Miller (WV). Talking with these members of Congress did give me more hope for our policymaking in the coming years. DHA members, I hope you will join us during next year's fly-in, where we'll meet new congressional leadership and potentially new committee chairs.

If you have questions or comments, contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.

Keith A. Christman, President
