Rep. Mark Meadows (North Carolina - 11)
Representative Mark Meadows represents Western North Carolina, which includes some of the most expansive forested areas along the Appalachian Mountains. He has long believed in responsible forest management leading to a vibrant and prosperous logging and wood industry. Serving on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Meadows will have a critical role in crafting a commonsense truck-weight policy which will consider reforms for truckers that the industry depends upon, while ensuring infrastructure maintenance and safety. He plans to use his seat on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee to investigate the regulatory burdens that the administration continues to place on the forest industry.
“The forest industry is critical to economic growth and job creation in Western North Carolina. Congress needs to work with the forest industry to develop responsible policies that promote economic growth, while maintaining a sustainable forest for long-term future needs. I am committed to rolling back burdensome regulations and working with the forest industry to help this critical sector of our economy prosper and grow.”
Thank you, Representative Meadows!
