WASHINGTON, D.C. - The National Pest Management Association announced its scheduled speakers for NPMA Legislative Day 2013. This year's event will feature keynote addresses by the following political speakers:

Laura Ingraham, radio host and political analyst. Ingraham is a regular Fox News contributor and the principal substitute host for The O'Reilly Factor, and a New York Times best-selling author. 

Chuck Todd, NBC News political reporter and chief White House correspondent. NPMA reports that Todd's poll analysis and commentary has made Todd one of the most sought-after voices in American political coverage.

Congressman Paul Ryan (R-WI), chairman of the House Budget Committee and 2012 Republican Vice-Presidential nominee has also been invited to speak. NPMA said Ryan has strived to bring fiscal discipline and accountability to the federal government.

NPMA says Legislative Day 2013 is a "once-in-a-blue-moon" event to forge relationships with a new Congress. "More than ever, we need you to attend and participate in NPMA Legislative Day and help NPMA establish partnerships with a new generation of federal lawmakers, which will ultimately benefit the entire professional pest management industry," NPMA said.
