Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

NRMCA will host its first quarterly "DC Days" for 2016 on Tuesday, February 9. Please join your industry peers on Capitol Hill to advocate for resilient construction legislation, including the Water Resources Reform and Development Act (WRRDA) and the Disaster Savings and Resilient Construction Act of 2015. Details for the event include the following: 

Who: Members of NRMCA’s Government Affairs Committee, Board of Directors and any association members are invited to participate.
What: The first of the committee's quarterly "DC Days" for 2016 will be an opportunity to meet with your congressional members and their staff to talk about issues of importance to our industry. This quarter's DC Day will focus specifically on educating key Members of Congress about resilient construction and related legislation and also on our top priorities in the upcoming WRRDA bill.
When: Tuesday, February 9 
Where: Washington, DC 
Why: Last year, NRMCA and our association members logged more hours on Capitol Hill than any previous year. As a result, we were able to secure many ready mixed concrete industry victories from the new logbook exemption to favorable hours of service rules in legislation like the highway bill and tax exemptions in the year-end spending package passed by Congress. Face-to-face advocacy clearly pays off and is the best way to help lawmakers understand our industry and the impact of their decisions have on businesses in their state. You are your best advocate for your business. Taking the time to educate decision makers can help ensure that fixes to issues result in positive outcomes for the entire ready mixed concrete industry.
