Week 5 began on February 7th! This week we were coming up on some key deadlines! Bills needed to leave their respective committees and be voted out of their house of origin by February 15th. This week Tammie Hetrick, WFIA President & CEO updates our members on supply chain issues and the messaging that has been shared with legislators. The messaging covers the vulnerability of the supply chain and why it is critical to consider how the legislation will impact it.
This week we have asked our members to do some grassroots work, contact their local legislator, and OPPOSE SB 5891. This bill has some warehouse safety restrictions and is overly broad.
