The executive board of the Glenview, Ill.–based Metal Construction Association recently met with a number of congressional offices to discuss and advocate the extension of the metal roof energy tax credit. Among the congressional staffers visited by executive director Mark Engle, lobbyist Tom Coleman, and five members of the executive board were Katherine Monge, tax counsel for Senator Ben Cardin (D-Md.); Corey Astill, counsel for Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.); Mary O’Keefe, legislative director for Congressman Dan Burton (R-Ind.); and Jon Traub, the staff director of the House Ways and Means Committee. According to Engle, the four meetings were productive but ultimately inconclusive as to the extension of the tax credit.
