Material Matters Member News Industry News/Information

On February 21, 2024, the National Lumber & Building Material Dealers Association (NLBMDA) released its 2024 National Policy Agenda, a comprehensive advocacy platform that outlines key priorities for the lumber and building material dealer industry in the coming year. The 2024 National Policy Agenda builds off of last year’s vision for growth by implementing new safeguards for LBM dealers from regulatory overreach by the federal government, strengthening capitalistic market incentives to prevent the largest credit card companies from price gouging LBM dealers and their customers, adding protections for LBM dealers to access bank capital that allows them to reinvest in their business and employees, and streamlining federal regulations to amplify market access to timber and the overall building material supply chain.

“NLBMDA members are essential to the U.S. economy and the dream of homeownership,” said Jonathan Paine, President & CEO of NLBMDA. “At a time when the housing industry faces significant barriers to new construction, development and renovation, our policy agenda highlights common sense areas for Congress and the White House to work together to boost investments in residential construction, strengthen the national housing market, and create more jobs across the country.”

The NLBMDA National Policy Agenda is divided into eight policy areas:

  1. Housing & Construction
  2. Tax & Economic Policy
  3. Legal Reform & Consumer Protection
  4. Workforce Policy
  5. Environment, Health & Safety
  6. Product Supply & Trade
  7. Energy
  8. Transportation & Fleet Safety
