AF&PA Supports the House and Senate Paper and Packaging Caucus


The Paper and Packaging Caucus’s purpose is to inform members of Congress about the value of the paper and packaging industry in their states and districts. This bipartisan and bicameral caucus will highlight the importance and economic significance of the paper and packaging industry and will focus on the policy solutions needed to sustain and promote this important sector.

Background and Activity:

Originating in the House in 2013 with over 35 members, the caucus expanded membership to the Senate in 2015. Sens. John Boozman (R–Ark.) and Debbie Stabenow (D–Mich.) are leading the Senate caucus for the 115th Congress and Rep. Bruce Poliquin (R–Maine) and Rep. Kurt Schrader (D–Ore.) will serve as our House Co-Chairs this Congress. Members plan to host educational events throughout each year and promote the forest products industry during National Forest Products Week, recognized each year during the third week of October.

Please consider joining the Paper and Packaging Caucus to represent industry employees in your state or district and the millions of people who depend on the products our industry creates for everyday life.

For more information on the paper and packing industry in your state or district, please contact AF&PA Director of Government Affairs, Julie Landry.
