AGC San Diego Chapter Annual Report 2015 - Page 8

GOVERNMENT RELATIONS COMMITTEE The Government Relations Committee ensures that AGC San Diego keeps a high-profile position in the “political arena” at the local, regional, state and national levels. This involves a continual analysis of all political efforts affecting the industry. The committee annually develops legislative positions for distribution to the membership. It works closely with our legislative advocate in Sacramento and with the AGC of California and AGC of America on all statewide and federal legislative matters. The committee is responsible for advocacy of adequate infrastructure investment. During 2015, the Committee worked with AGC staff, state legislative advocates Dave Ackerman, Jamie Khan, and Paul Gladfelty, and AGC of America’s team led by Jeff Shoaf on a number of key local, state, and federal issues. The Committee also worked with the Engineering and General Contractors’ Council to address a number of legislative issues, including stormwater runoff liability, expansion of prevailing wages on ready-mix concrete drivers, and transportation funding. #SU4T Thomas L.
