ASSA DC FLY-IN The core Government Relations group of members from ASSA met with members of Congress the first week in March. We held 12 meetings and conducted follow up with members of Congress and staff from HASC and SASC to present the ASSA white paper and requests. We also met with the new Made in America Director, Livia Shmavonian. (The ASSA white paper is attached for your review.) We also provided members of Congress with specific examples from our members on how not passing legislation supporting shipbuilding suppliers will significantly impact your business. Thanks to the members who provided these case examples. We will continue follow-up as needed to advocate for our requests.
