NCA is excited to announce that two of our biggest sugar reform champions, Congressman Joe Pitts (R-PA-16) and Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-CA-14), will be joining us for breakfast on Thursday morning, September 19, 2013.


 Representative Joe Pitts     Representative Jackie Speier


Representative Pitts, one of the confectionery industry's strongest supporters and original author of sugar reform legislation in the House of Representatives, and Representative Speier, a vocal and outspoken leader on sugar reform and original cosponsor of the sugar reform legislation, will speak to attendees about the current status of the farm bill, what to expect for sugar reform in 2013 and 2014, and on other important issues currently affecting the confectionery industry.


With Rep. Pitts's role as Chairman of the Health Subcommittee on the prominent Energy & Commerce Committee, and Rep. Speier's position as Senior Whip for the Democratic Party, both bring significant knowledge on issues affecting businesses and a passion for protecting our industry.
