THE FUTURE OF TRADE
There has been a lot of discussion surrounding tariffs and
trade with China, and that discussion is likely to continue.
China holds importance in the lubricant industry, Hamilton
said. "There are things we use and need that are only supplied
by Chinese sources, and those ingredients might disappear or
be costly to get if this tariff issue plays out in a harsh way," he
explained, adding that he doesn't foresee an all-out tariff war.
"I think ultimately there will be a new trade agreement with
China, and I think there will be some good gains." If there
is a long, drawn-out war with China, that could have some
adverse effects on the lubricant industry, Hamilton said.
CHANGES AT THE STATE LEVEL
Democrats picked up seven governorships and several state
legislatures. Ogburn said there are several state-level issues
that will affect the lubricants industry. West Virginia, for
example, has passed stringent above-ground storage regulations, and Ohio is considering doing the same thing.

Legislation concerning several of ILMA's issues of concern,
including obsolete oils and tractor hydraulic fluid, are either
at the state level or with the National Conference of Weights
and Measures, which isn't within Congress, Alfano said.
PREPARE FOR THE FUTURE
No matter which party is in control, it is valuable for ILMA
members to form a relationship with their lawmakers, Leiter
said. "If you want a friend, be a friend. It doesn't take more
than that to establish a relationship with your member of
Congress," he said. "A lot of folks think it is a daunting task,
but it really isn't."
Those in the lubricant industry can invite lawmakers to
visit their locations, visit with Member of Congress' staff
at their district office or attend Kiwanis meetings when the
lawmaker visits, Leiter said. "You don't need an issue to
establish a relationship," he explained.
