WASHINGTON – The Paper & Packaging Caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives, today, announced new bipartisan leadership.

Congressman Dan Newhouse (R-WA-4) and Congressman Lou Correa (D-CA-46) will serve as Co-Chairs representing the U.S. paper and wood products industry.

They join the continued bipartisan leadership of Co-Chairs in the U.S. Senate: Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) and Senator John Boozman (R-AR).

“We are excited to welcome the new Co-Chairs of the House Paper & Packaging Caucus,” said AF&PA President and CEO Heidi Brock. “We are one of the largest manufacturing industries in the United States.

These are essential products, made from renewable resources, and used every day by millions of Americans.”

“The Paper & Packaging Caucus is a bipartisan, bicameral caucus highlighting the importance and economic significance of the paper and wood products industry,” said Christian Fischer, President and CEO of Georgia-Pacific LLC and Chair of the AF&PA Board of Directors. “We look forward to working with Congressmen Newhouse and Correa, and welcome other lawmakers to join us, as we work toward common-sense, bipartisan policies that advance U.S. manufacturing and create sustainable products.”
