Government Relations Committee update
Submitted by GRC members April Vanover, FASTLANE, and Tayte French-Lutz, French Oil Mill Machinery Co.
The DRMA Government Relations Committee has been hard at work scheduling future meet ups and keeping up-to-date on current events. Here is what they've been up to and following:
GRC hosted a meet up with State Rep. Rodney Creech on 7/23 at Henny Penny. Creech outlined his work on transportation issues and participated in a robust discussion about the talent pipeline for manufacturers.
The DACC continues to work on building the talent pipeline by securing funding for the TechCred Program and high school credentialing for in-high-demand manufacturing careers.
NAM is focused on resolving supply chain issues and is working to get the bipartisan infrastructure bill passed through congress. It doesn't believe another COVID-19 lockdown will happen.
CPA is focused on supply chain issues and policy with China.
