The CAWV maintains a dynamic lobbying and government relations program with the specific goals of advancing the collective interests of the construction industry. As our members’ voice at the West Virginia Legislature and across all levels of government, we work to ensure that there is a level playing field for contractors and to maximize funding opportunities for infrastructure projects. We also oppose 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 the various bills introduced and the CAWV position on relevant legislation.

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