AF&PA supports Tennessee Forestry Association, Tennessee Paper Council advocacy day
The American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) supports the Tennessee Forestry Association and the Tennessee Paper Council in their efforts to share important industry facts with Tennessee state legislators alongside several AF&PA member companies at Legislative Plaza on March 9 in the Nashville, Tenn.
“Paper and wood products manufacturers operate over 140 facilities in Tennessee that contribute nearly $2 billion in payroll and $143 million in annual state and local taxes,” said AF&PA President and CEO Donna Harman. “Nationally, our industry employs over 900,000 men and women who make a variety of products that Americans rely on every day, including communication papers, paper-based packaging, tissue products and wood-based building materials. We encourage Tennessee policymakers to ensure that policies they adopt are favorable to economic growth and job creation so that the products from facilities we represent in Tennessee remain competitive in global markets.”
