The checkoff could expand to other concrete masonry product categories including pavers, retaining walls and stone without your consent.
FACT: That is incorrect. The Order the industry is voting on only provides for assessments on concrete masonry units and only concrete masonry unit manufacturers are eligible to vote. While the authorizing legislation does provide for possible future expansion, such expansion would require a petition from the industry to do so, then another Congressional order, and then another referendum. None of that is being proposed now and it would be illegal to assess hardscape product manufacturers without them having a voice and a vote in a referendum.
