Capitol Hill

Building strength

The roofing industry continues to face many challenges from government policies that too often have adverse effects on employers. As NRCA works to protect the industry from intrusive regulation, the importance of ROOFPAC, NRCA's political action committee, has become greater than ever.

ROOFPAC is dedicated to supporting Congressional candidates who will help advance government policies that enable entrepreneurs in the roofing industry to successfully start and grow businesses. Given the expected continued growth of government regulation in the future, a strong ROOFPAC is crucial to NRCA's government relations activities in Washington, D.C.

What's at stake

Roofing contractors continue to face new requirements and taxes imposed by the federal government. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is moving forward with problematic regulations that increase contractors' costs while providing questionable workplace safety benefits. Higher taxes on businesses are being pushed by some in Congress to pay for expanded government programs. And the Department of Labor and National Labor Relations Board are expected to issue several regulations this year that will likely contain new, burdensome requirements for employers.
