ISSUES AND ADVOCACY
Advocating for our members and promoting the construction industry to legislators and policymakers is an important priority for Rocky Mountain MCA. We work with elected officials and government agencies at the state and local levels to encourage investment in building infrastructure and the development of sound policies that will lead to job creation and a thriving economy. We will continue to track, analyze and lobby bills with impact to the mechanical, plumbing and HVACR industry and keep members apprised of the issues and bills affecting their business.
As part of our efforts, Rocky Mountain MCA commissions and distributes an annual Colorado Capital Construction Report. This report serves to outline the economic impact of the construction industry in Colorado and educate policymakers about the importance of investment in capital construction and controlled maintenance.
Rocky Mountain MCA is a founding member of the Building Jobs for Colorado (BJ4C) Coalition which represents a broad coalition of construction industry owners, general contractors, sub-contractors and sub-sub-contractors across Colorado. The BJ4C coalition meets at least twice per month during the session to review and discuss legislation and the potential impact on the construction and design industries. Together the coalition represents more than 1,500 companies and 40,000+ employees in Colorado to advocate on industry issues at the state capitol. BJ4C hosts an annual Legislative Reception attended by industry leaders and elected officials, providing an opportunity to network in a social setting and to see the construction and design industries and BJ4C coalition collaboration. BJ4C has helped pass several payment reform laws on behalf of our members and the industry.
