As we have stated from the beginning of the discussion on health care reform, the small business relief contained in the Affordable Care Act is targeted only to the smallest of businesses, leaving out the majority of building material dealers. NLBMDA remains concerned about the burden of meeting the requirements of the Affordable Care Act and supports reforms to lessen its impact on employers' ability to provide required benefit levels to industry employees.
We will continue to work with Congress, the Administration and the broader business community to identify and seek ways to make health care more affordable and reduce the burdens from the Affordable Care Act on America's building material dealers."
The National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association (NLBMDA) represents its members in the national public policy arena, with emphasis on efforts to 1) promote the industry and educate legislators and public policy personnel; and 2) assist legislative, regulatory, standard-setting and other government or private bodies in the development of laws, regulations and policies affecting lumber and building material dealers, its customers and suppliers. Founded in 1917, the association has over 6,000 members operating single or multiple lumber yards and component plants serving homebuilders, subcontractors, general contractors, and consumers in the new construction, repair and remodeling of residential and light commercial.
