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.

Hear what some of our members are saying about the value of a CAWV membership:

“The CAWV keeps me up to date on the issues that affect my company and the construction industry. This gives me a competitive advantage in the marketplace.”
