The Week Ahead: Recess — Time to Get to Work

By April 10, 2006General

This week finds Congress in the first week of a two-week recess. In other words, the Republic is safe. Actually, these recesses were renamed “District Work Periods” some years back.

We urge you to use this time to talk to your member of Congress and Senators, even invite them into your facilities, talk to them about your soaring energy costs, health care costs, taxes, regulatory burdens, etc. Let them know how hard it is to compete in this global environment, the cost pressures that face every American manufacturer. Make sure their time back in the district for their District Work Period is time well-spent, and that they hear the voice of manufacturing.
