Date: May 1, 2024
Time: 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM CDT
Event Description:
Policies coming from Washington, D.C. have a direct impact on every manufacturing company in the state of Wisconsin. PMA’s lobbyist in the nation’s capital, Omar S. Nashashibi with The Franklin Partnership, will provide an insider’s view on efforts this year in the U.S. Congress to address the tax on R&D activities and preparation for major tax increases after 2025, what steps the Biden administration is taking on steel and aluminum tariffs, and which regulations such as an OSHA indoor heat rule and updates to the apprenticeship program could change how Wisconsin manufacturers run their shops.

This timely presentation also will provide a quick preview of how election outcomes in the state and around the country this November could impact policies critical to manufacturing in America, including on tax and trade.

Omar Nashashibi is a founding partner of The Franklin Partnership, LLC, the bipartisan Washington, D.C.-based government relations firm that represents PMA’s interests before Congress and the Administration. Omar has more than 20 years of experience working with policymakers, politicians and the media. Prior to The Franklin Partnership, Omar worked for the Office of Management and Budget. Earlier in his career, he served as a research assistant at the Institute for Public Accuracy, promoting policy to the media. In 1995, he began his career in Washington, D.C. covering congressional and agency hearings for a nationwide nonprofit publication.
