AED’s Political Action Committee (PAC) allows equipment distributors to speak with a common voice in the political process by helping to elect federal candidates who share the political goals of the equipment industry.

AED PAC is supported entirely by voluntary, personal contributions from AED members and accepts contributions only from members who have given PAC solicitation consent in accordance with the Federal Election Campaign Act.

AED PAC candidates support:

  • Increasing highway, airport, and water infrastructure construction funding.
  • Promoting pro-growth tax policies (such as protecting LIFO and repealing the three percent government contractor withholding tax), encouraging fiscal responsibility, and restoring certainty and simplicity to the tax code.
  • Ensuring congressional oversight of executive branch agencies attempting to circumvent the legislative branch to implement sweeping expansions of labor, environment, and workplace safety laws.
  • Improving access to financing for commercial, residential, and infrastructure projects.

To give AED PAC your consent to be solicited for contributions, please fill out the form below.

Federal law requires separate and specific consent for each year. Please type your first and last name indicating your signature beside each year for which you wish to give solicitation permission:
