Legislative Agenda

Legislative Agenda

Unmitigated corrosion threatens our environment and public safety, sometimes with catastrophic results. It is an issue that significantly affects our economy and every American each day. Whether in the form of a bridge collapse, a pipeline failure, or even a dead car battery; unmitigated corrosion harms people, assets, and the environment at a cost of more than $500 billion a year to the U.S. economy. Fortunately, when properly addressed, the harmful effects of corrosion can be mitigated, and costs can be reduced by as much as thirty percent.
