GOOD PARTICIPATION FOR JUNE 11 CAWV CONGRESSIONAL FLY-IN
President Phil Weser will lead a large delegation of CAWV members at this year’s CAWV Congressional Fly-In to Washington on June 11. This is the 26th year CAWV members have trekked to the Nation’s Capital to meet with West Virginia’s leaders to address issues affecting CAWV members and the contracting industry. High on this year’s priority list will be the need to invest in the nation’s infrastructure, particularly the reauthorization of the federal-aid highway bill. Highway contractors are being told now to prepare for slowdown of payments in August and September due to the Highway Trust Fund running out of funds (see this week’s Highway Bulletin for complete details). Members who have an interest in participating in this year’s fly-in can contact Mike Clowser at 304-342-1166 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
