May 15, 2013
WASHINGTON – American Wood Council President and CEO Robert Glowinski today issued the following statement regarding the Senate Agriculture Committee's passage of the 2013 Farm Bill. 

"We commend Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow and Ranking Member Thad Cochran for their leadership in providing an exhaustive review of the 2012 Farm Bill, and we appreciate their hard work to improve the standing of wood products in USDA's biobased programs. Wood products by nature are biobased and should be eligible to compete on a level playing field with other biobased products as was originally intended by the law."
