LEGISLATIVE
ACTION & ADVOCACY

The CAWV is a highly proactive force with a dynamic and lobbying program of specific goals to advance the interests of the construction industry. As our members voice at the West Virginia Legislature, we work to ensure that there is a level playing field for contractors and to maximize funding opportunities for infrastructure projects. We work against unreasonable environmental legislation, repressive labor litigation and unfair business and employment practices.

The CAWV works diligently during the 60-day legislative session to keep members informed on those issues that affect their businesses and the construction industry. The weekly CAWV Legislative Bulletin and CAWV Legislative Alerts provide information on bills introduced, their status and the CAWV position.

The Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America and the American Road and Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) represent CAWV members in our nation’s capital on issues on the federal level.
