Additional CHEMPAC Support Needed

Despite a legislature and administration which is growing more progressive with each election, CICI was able to hold off devastating Environmental Justice (EJ) measures, PFAS bans and restrictions, a half-billion-dollar Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) initiative, numerous bans on our products and processes, stringent new regulations, expensive new energy mandates, workplace restrictions on who we can hire, and numerous tax and fee hike proposals.

In the past, when the General Assembly had a more balanced composition of members, most of these harmful legislative measures wouldn’t have seen the light of day, much less been given the full-throated voice that we’ve seen in recent legislative activity.  However, without any foreseen changes in the balance of state’s political make-up, these types of challenges will not only remain for the industry, but become more commonplace, and have a greater chance of succeeding.

The reason we are contacting you today is simple - CICI needs to step up its game in retaining lawmakers and electing candidates which view our industry as a real benefit to the state’s economy. Next year’s election is already shaping up. In other words, we need to grow the PAC substantially. CICI is asking for your support of CHEMPAC, the only political action committee that solely represents the state’s chemical industry.

CICI has only been successful in stopping devastating legislation because our membership is engaged in the political process. We also have an active and experienced lobbying team, and we’ve utilized CHEMPAC to make our voice heard. But the demands on CHEMPAC have grown exponentially and will only keep growing. The next election is less than a year away.
