This is an interesting claim.  I know exactly who is one the committee.  I
have a copy of the committee roster and do not recognize any organization or
individual that is a manufacturer.  Is this simply your personal opinions or is
there some other basis for your claims?

There appear to be 48 named members.  Who is a manufacturer?  Who holds the
opinion you propose?  How do you know this is something they (the committee as
a whole and any one individual in particular) don't want to do?  Just curious
and looking for primary sources.

Thanks in advance for providing some corroborating evidence for your claim.

Jim Kaufman (been around a LONGER TIME, prefer solid evidence over personal
opinions and don't appreciate it when the two become confused.)
