Who's looking out for the industry on Capitol Hill?

To support member of Congress who are looking out for the interests of the security industry on Capital Hill, the National Burglar & Fire Alarm Association has formed a new Political Action Committee. NBFAA's government relations guru John Chwat said in a statement that PACS are a great way to facilitate contributions to U.S. Congressional candidates in House and Senate races. "The legal minefield one must navigate to give directly to a candidate is confusing at best, and PACs avoid the possible problems inherent in companies trying to manage individual contributions," he said. The NBFAA will soon begin soliciting PAC contributions from member companies.
