Public Policy



Stand Up and Be Counted

Every day the U.S. Congress is bombarded with requests to support or oppose legislation. Individuals, organizations and entire industries all are fighting for or against laws that impact their business or personal lives. In this environment, the interests of the pest management industry can easily get overlooked.

We cannot afford to let this happen. Access to key congressional leaders is critical to shaping the pest management industry's legislative agenda now and in the years to come. We must ensure that lawmakers know us, hear us, and respond to us. That takes a strong association and direct member involvement on Capitol Hill.

A generous donation to Pest PAC, the National Pest Management Association’s Political Action Committee, helps keep the industry at the forefront of congressional thinking.
