WASHINGTON - The NPCA and its Political Action Committee, PaintPAC, announced the launch of a bipartisan political initiative with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, called www.VOTE FOR BUSINESS.com.

The NPCA said the ultimate goal of the initiative is to provide information about candidates "best suited to represent the business community." The initiative will provide NPCA member companies and their employees with access to an online political education program that provides information on registering to vote, absentee voting, polling locations, and candidate biographies for all 50 states.

"Each vote can make a difference in helping to elect state and federal representatives responsive to our industry," the association said.

More information on where candidates stand on key business issues and profiles of key races is available at the website located at www.voteforbusiness.com.
