House and Senate Paper and Packaging Caucus

AF&PA supports the Paper and Packaging Caucus’s purpose to inform members of Congress about the value of the paper and packaging industry in their states and districts. This bipartisan, bicameral caucus highlights the importance and economic significance of the paper and packaging industry and focuses on the policy solutions needed to sustain and promote this important sector.

Background and Activity

Originating in the House in 2013 with 50 members, the caucus expanded membership to include the Senate in 2015. In the 116th Congress, Senators John Boozman (R–AR) and Debbie Stabenow (D–MI) led the Senate caucus, and Representatives Tom Rice (R-SC) and Kurt Schrader (D–OR) serve as House Co-Chairs.

Members host educational events throughout each year and promote the forest products industry during National Forest Products Week - recognized during the third week of October.

Please consider joining the Congressional Paper and Packaging Caucus to represent industry employees in your state or district and the millions of people who depend on the products our industry creates for everyday life.
