The Washington Outlook

Chuck2012 Conference, Audio

One of our first sessions this morning focused on the Federal Policy Outlook, particularly in Washington, DC. Presenting were Maria Cardona, Dewey Square Group and Brad Todd, On Message, Inc.

I spoke with Maria after the session to get her thoughts on what’s going on in our nation’s Capitol. She says this is going to be a really challenging year since we’ve not only got a Presidential election but also some of the most partisan disagreement in memory. What is hopeful, however, is how powerful your voice can be. She highly encourages biodiesel industry members to contact their local legislators directly since that contact carries more weight than even the highest paid lobbyist.
