ILMA Compoundings September 2016 - 14

NOTES FROM MSCI on downstream domestic markets, manufacturers and steel producers. Simply increasing the price of imported steel will inevitably increase the input costs of U.S. manufactured steel products, potentially making important segments of the U.S. manufacturing base less competitive in the global economy. MSCI is unique in that we advocate for both a healthy domestic source of supply and a pro-manufacturing environment. Policies that help us compete and foster success - without driving manufacturers off-shore - are imperative. We will again testify before the USTR in September on behalf of aluminum. The second lesson is that, like ILMA, we've also learned the power of the collective voice. MSCI gains influence and traction with decision-makers in Washington by partnering with other organizations through coalitions. When trade associations band together to present a common, unified message to lawmakers and regulators, we have a better chance at making a strong impression and affecting change. Each organization matters, but together our voice is even more compelling. The same is true for individual voters - every vote counts. As an association, it's vital to educate members and their employees about the critical issues affecting our jobs and industry. To accomplish that, MSCI has developed a "Get Out the Vote" campaign and resources, encouraging members to hold voter registration drives. As an industry, we can make our voice heard through our votes. In addition to trade, MSCI is engaged in a number of other issues. Our issues agenda includes the following positions on issues critical to metals: Energy, environment and transportation: Lower, more stable energy prices will make U.S. manufacturers more competitive with their foreign counterparts. Ensuring a stable workforce: A skilled workforce is fundamental to a prosperous North American metals industry, yet we face serious education and training challenges that threaten our productivity and competitiveness. You use it. Calcium, Barium Sodium Sulfonates Neutral, Overbased, Natural, Synthetic Oxidized Waxes and Petrolatums Various acid values, esters and soaps Rust Preventive Packages Calcium or barium sulfonate-based Water displacing and water-emulsifiable Emulsifier Packages Soluble and semi-synthetic bases For naphthenic and paraffinic base oils Metalworking Processing Additives Corrosion Inhibitors, amides, lubricity additives Gelled Calcium Sulfonates Oil, solvent and water soluble We manufacture it. Health care: Washington must preserve what works in our health care system while reforming what does not. Regulatory reform: Regulations are necessary to ensure consumer and worker well-being, but overregulation imposes significant costs on Americans without improving their daily lives or enhancing their safety or prosperity. Taxes and fiscal responsibility: Leaders in Washington must reduce the overall tax and compliance burden and establish a simpler, flatter and fairer system that will encourage investment and innovation. Our complete issues platform, along with opportunities to become more involved, can be found on our new advocacy website, MSCI.org/MetalMatters. Join us - and be sure to exercise your right to vote in November! Weidner is president and CEO of the Metals Service Center Institute. He may be reached at 847-485-3002 or bweidner@msci.org.
