On Wednesday, February 9, 2022 at 10 am the ABMA will launch the second entry into our “Inside the Capitol” virtual series. Our guest will be Arkansas Congressman Bruce Westerman.
Congressman Bruce Westerman represents Arkansas’s 4th District and is serving his 4th term in Congress. Mr. Westerman sits on two key committees—the House Natural Resources Committee where he is the Ranking Member and the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. In addition to sitting on these important panels, he is the founder and co-chair of the House Working Forests Caucus—a bipartisan group of nearly 60 House Members that seeks to promote federal policy supporting private forests in this country and wood products markets that sustain them. Rep. Westerman is the only forester in the House of Representatives.
Rep. Westerman is the author of key legislation known as the Trillion Trees Act that highlights the critical roles that forests and wood building materials play in greenhouse gas mitigation. He is a strong supporter of policies that help Main Street businesses and legislation that benefits the lumber and building materials sector.

About “Inside the Capitol”
“Inside the Capitol” was established to introduce members of Congress from across the country to our ABMA membership. Legislators will share their insight into the latest issues dominating Washington DC, discuss how federal policy impacts the LBM industry, and take questions from the audience. These virtual meetings will offer behind the scenes access to the halls of the Capitol from respected and influential policy makers from both the Senate and the House of Representatives.
