Advocacy Day Update: Sen. Smith Cosponsors Federal Bird Safe Buildings Act

Thank you to all who participated in NGA’s Glass and Glazing Advocacy Day, April 4-5 in Washington, D.C., as part of NGA's sponsorship and promotion of the International Year of Glass. The event brought together NGA member companies, Congressional members and agency officials.

Following up on this first-ever event, NGA is excited to share that U.S. Senator Tina Smith (D-MN) has cosponsored S.791, the Federal Bird Safe Buildings Act. This legislation would require the Federal General Services Administration (GSA) to incorporate relevant features and strategies to reduce bird fatalities into newly constructed, acquired, or substantially altered public buildings. The bill also mandates that GSA develop a related design guide and annually certify its active use.

Brennan Barber, Senator Smith’s Education & Labor Policy Advisor, spoke with NGA staff and members during the event and encouraged the Senator to cosponsor this essential legislation following his conversation with us.
