The Associated General Contractors Of Tennessee

ADVOCACY

A POWERFUL VOICE IN GOVERNMENT 
 
From a governmental affairs perspective, the AGC of Tennessee works through its own staff lobbyist, and when appropriate hired lobbyists, to support legislation that is in the best interest of the the construction industry and consumers.  This is the biggest benefit we provide to our members.
 
     

The importance of the legislative affairs effort to the industry cannot be underestimated. Each year legislation that is potentially injurious to the construction industry makes its way into the legislative process.  Our members benefit from AGC of Tennessee's active participation in the legislative process at the local, state and federal levels affecting economic and infrastructure development.  Through our lobbying efforts and the marshalling of "grassroots" responses when needed, we work together to ensure a healthy legislative and regulatory environment in Tennessee.  During the legislative session, updates on current legislation are sent to members through email alerts and updates to our website.
