ABC Texas Gulf Coast Chair Mark Monical, Director Buck Blevins and Terry McAlister, President & CEO were on Capitol Hill last week as ABC members from across the nation gathered in Washington, D.C. for ABCs 2019 Legislative Week.
Legislative Week is an opportunity for ABC members to hear from top administration and congressional leaders on the issues that impact the construction industry on the federal and state levels. Attendees heard inspiring calls to action from merit shop advocates and an overview of ABC’s legislative priorities for the year ahead. ABC members from across the nation gathered on Capitol Hill to garner support for issues critical to ABC members. Other events during the week included the 2019 Legislative Day breakfast featuring VIP speakers (Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-TX and Sen. Rick Scott, R-FL), and the opportunity to network with peers and members of Congress on Capitol Hill to give representatives a firsthand understanding of how legislation affects the construction industry.
