On April 20th, the Geismar site received a special visit from our U.S. Congressman Garrett Graves to see our facility and learn more about the impact we have here in Louisiana and across our global businesses. The purpose of Congressman Graves' visit was a follow up to LCA meetings held earlier this year In Washington D.C. with General Manager, Mark Dearman, and our Huntsman Governmental Affairs team. While in Washington, Mark met with Congressman Graves and several other members of the LA Congressional delegation to discuss current issues and concerns for the Louisiana Chemical Industry.
Congressman Graves received a tour of the site and visited the MDI-3 control room, where he was able to visit with the operating team and see our technology at work. The visit was concluded with a town hall meeting with many of our associates, whereby Congressman Graves shared his unique perspective on current events and answered questions on a broad range of topics including healthcare reform, foreign policy, defense, taxes, and the environment. Congressman Graves thoroughly enjoyed his visit and we hope to have him back again soon.
