The state’s premier commercial construction political action committee, AGC's BUILD PAC supports state and local government candidates and issues effecting the construction industry.
The name really does say it all! Contractors (and others) are working together to build:
- Understanding of construction industry issues
- Alliances for a stronger presence
- Reasonable government
- Progress for Washington State and its citizens
Influencing government has never been more important. Public infrastructure investment, trust fund preservation, workable environmental rules, state agency regulatory reform. These and other issues all affect the quality of, and your ability to conduct, your business. Public or private construction; large or small volume; general, sub, supplier or construction services all benefit from supportive government decisions.
Public officials who understand the importance of the construction industry to the state's economy rarely just happen along. Individuals willing to serve who are able and willing to advocate our industry viewpoints must be identified, encouraged, and supported. This support includes financial assistance in their elections. Your participation is vital.
