NRMCA Watching for Timber Provisions in Farm Bill
The first public meeting of the 2018 farm bill conference committee will be held September 5. NRMCA and coalition partners have worked throughout the formulation and consideration of both the House and Senate farm bills to oppose the inclusion of mass timber building competitions – provisions that would unfairly favor timber in the construction materials marketplace. The Stop the Timber Innovation Act Coalition sent letters to the House and Senate Agriculture Committee chairs and ranking members, and will soon follow with letters to each of the 50-plus members of the conference committee, stressing our opposition to dropping in new language to promote mass timber construction.
