The Government & Legislative Issues Committee is the organized political voice for the DCA. We are a group of dedicated DCA Members and local Legislative Representatives who gather monthly to:

  • Build Partnerships between DCA Members & Legislative Representatives
  • Provide direct feedback about Construction related legislation
  • Help Legislators understand our needs in construction
  • Provide a venue to voice business concerns
  • Increase communication between the DCA and our community representatives
