Eric Hoplin, President and CEO of NAW, issued the following statement:

“Amidst soaring inflation, crisis at our Southern Border, and ongoing conflicts abroad, Congress needs to govern with a calm hand at the wheel. Removing Speaker Mike Johnson at this critical juncture would only hinder progress on urgent issues. Now is not the time for political infighting that could further paralyze our government. We urge Members of Congress to prioritize the stability of our government and refrain from any actions that would jeopardize it.”

The National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors (NAW) is one of America’s leading trade associations, representing the $8 trillion wholesale distribution industry. Our industry employs more than 6 million workers throughout the United States, accounting for approximately 1/3 of the U.S. GDP. 250,000 wholesale distribution companies operate across North America, including all 50 states.
