ACEC Advocacy SVP Steve Hall joined the Engineering Influence podcast to wrap up the recent virtual ACEC Annual Convention and Legislative Summit and discuss the outlook on infrastructure in Congress.
In a letter to Congressional leaders, ACEC and its coalition partners are asking for a “multi-billion dollar increase for vital research, development, demonstration, and commercial deployment across all Science and Energy program areas of the Department of Energy (DOE).”
At the ACEC Legislative Briefing at the ACEC Convention, ACEC Advocacy SVP Steve Hall and Transportation VP Matt Reiffer highlighted the key issues for the Council’s virtual grassroots lobbying campaign over the coming months.
Going into the 2021 ACEC Annual Convention and Legislative Summit, ACEC Indiana, ACEC Tennessee, ACEC Massachusetts, ACEC Wisconsin, and ACEC Montana have already hit their annual ACEC/PAC fundraising targets.
ACEC lobbyists are meeting with Senators and U.S. Representatives to urge their support for waiving the FAR credits clause for forgiven Paycheck Protection Program loans. To keep the pressure on, the Council is calling on members to contact their Congressional delegations to advocate for relief.
