The past week has been a good week in Washington D.C. - definitely something you don’t hear people say very often. Last week was the composite industry’s annual Infrastructure Day in D.C., and the timing was perfect. After a year of planning, the Trump administration unveiled its Infrastructure Initiative on Monday, February 12. It was the hot topic (on a cold day) as representatives from member companies of the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) met with elected officials and staff members. Given the attention to infrastructure, our annual ‘day’ was actually two days - Feb 6-7. Split into teams, we met with over 90 congressional offices and committees. I met with three Ohio offices, offices from a few states that have lots of bridges and waterfront and the Senate Public Works committee. Since Plastic News does a great job summarizing the visits, I'll focus on my personal observations.
