Advocacy

Scale of justice

ACA in Action

ACA serves as a forceful and effective advocate and voice for its industry on legislative, regulatory and judicial issues at the federal, state and local levels.

ACA Positions

ACA supports federal legislation (H.R. 3256) that would extend the authorization for the Chemical Facility Antiterrorism Standards (CFATS) program through 2025. With member companies who own and operate paint, coating, and chemical manufacturing facilities, ACA strongly supports the safe handling and safe use of chemicals, and urged swift Congressional passage of the legislation.

Issue Backgrounders

In its most current Issue Backgrounder delivered to members of Congress, ACA urged approval of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) to preserve the myriad trade benefits for the paint and coatings industry. READ MORE.
